§ MR. ROSS (Londonderry)
On behalf of the hon. and learned Member for Dublin University, I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in the event of the Evicted Tenants Bill becoming law, the sum advanced under the Land Improvement Acts (amounting in all to £20,000) to tenants who have been evicted since 1st May, 1879, will become charges upon the new interests of such tenants as may be reinstated?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Sir J. T. HIBBERT,) Oldham
There seems to be no doubt that the tenants when reinstated will continue liable to pay the charges in respect of the loans referred to. The course to be taken with regard to the instalments which became due during the time that the tenants were not in occupation will have to be considered when their reinstatement takes place.
