§ MR. M'CARTAN (Down, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the resolution unanimously adopted by the Newtownards Farmers' Association, at a meeting held on the 26th May last; and whether he intends to make provision in his Land Purchase Bill in the direction pointed out in this resolution?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The hon. Gentleman asked me this question the other day. I then stated that the resolution had not been brought to my notice, and I have not yet seen it. If the hon. Gentleman will be good enough to for- 717 ward me a copy of it I shall be very glad.
