HC Deb 27 July 1891 vol 356 cc513-4

(1.26.) Order read for resuming Adjourned Debate on Amendment proposed to Question [24th July], on Consideration, as Amended.

And which Amendment was, in page 1, line 7, after the word "one," to insert the words "and Section 3."—(Mr. T. M. Healy.)

Question again proposed, "That those words be there inserted."

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Amendment proposed, in Clause 1, page 1, line 13, after "case," to insert "holding and district."—(Mr. Macartney.')


I shall not oppose this, but I may point out that it raise" a very important contention. The phrase "a full agricultural rent," would include a rent on the tenant's own improvements, and I should prefer to see the words, "a fair rent within the meaning of the said Acts."


The Government cannot accept the Amendment.

Question put, and negatived.

Amendments made.

Amendment proposed, in page 1, line 14, to leave out the words "full agricultural rent," and insert the words "fair rent within the meaning of the said Acts."—(Mr. T. M. Healy.)

Question, "That the words proposed to be left out stand part of the Bill," put, and agreed to.

Other Amendments made.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read the third time."


If I do not object to this, I hope the Labourers (Ireland) Act will not be opposed.


I am afraid that that not being a Government Bill, cannot he taken after 1 o'clock.


In fairness to the Government, I should like to point out an error of drafting in the second line, which, unless it is altered, will let in the tenants for whom the Bill is not intended.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill read the third time, and passed.
