§ MR. JOHN MORLEY (Newcastle-upon-Tyne)
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, with reference to the Return which was asked for by the hon. Member for Stepney (Mr. Wootton Isaacson), Whether that Return was intended as a substitute for the much fuller Return on Land Purchase which he (Mr. John Morley) had proposed?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
, in reply, said, the right hon. Gedtleman seemed under a misapprehension. The Government would not consent to the Return asked for by the hon. Member.
§ MR. JOHN MORLEY
asked, if the fuller Return which he himself had previously proposed would be granted?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
said, he thought the Land Commissioners would have no difficulty in giving the Return substan- 901 tially in the form asked for by the right hon. Gentleman.
