HC Deb 23 February 1891 vol 350 cc1369-70

I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland if he intends to re-introduce the Local Registration of Title (Ireland) Bill; and if, in view of the necessity of speedily passing Part IV., dealing with the devolution of freeholds sold under the Purchase Acts, he will consider whether it would be advisable to introduce what would be a non-contentious measure separately?


I am glad to find that the hon. and learned Gentleman in whose name this question stands—and other hon. Members—recognises the necessity of speedily passing the fourth part of the Local Registration of Title Bill. In this I agree with him. But I regard it as of equal importance to provide tenant purchasers with a system of registration suitable to the nature of their holdings. From the reception given to the Bill last year I venture to regard it as practically non-contentious. By introducing it early in the present Session I hope that it may be possible to pass it into law with such useful amendments as may be suggested by hon. Members who take an interest in this important matter.
