§ MR. SEXTON
I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether, in the case of Mr. W. N. Wallace, who has been awarded £3,000 compensation from the municipal rates of Belfast for houses to be demolished with a view to civic improvements, and has served his tenants with notice to quit, those tenants are entitled by law to any compensation for disturbance and loss of business?
§ *MR. MADDEN
From the Report furnished to the Local Government Board by the town clerk of Belfast, it appeal's that Mr. Wallace, with a view of improving his property, has been removing the existing houses so as to provide sites for a better class, and the Corporation have taken advantage of the opportunity to acquire a small portion of the ground to improve the streets. The Corporation have no knowledge as to whether the tenants have legal claims against Mr. Wallace, and this is a question upon which I ought not to express an opinion, even if I had the necessary materials before me.
