§ MR. JASPER MORE(for Mr. LEA) (Londonderry, E.) (Shropshire, Ludlow)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, If all purchasers under the Irish Land Act of 1870, who have applied for the extended time for the repayment of their loans allowed by the Land Act of last year, have been given the extra period permitted by that Act?
§ THE SECRETARY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
In a few cases where the extension of the term to the full period would have reduced the annuity payable for the remainder of the term to less than 4 per cent. the Treasury have made no concession as to extension of time. In certain cases outstanding where the borrowers were in arrear, an agreement 888 has not yet been arrived at as to the instalment of arrears to be paid up before the benefits of the Act of last Session are extended to them.
