HC Deb 16 July 1894 vol 27 cc17-8
MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the terms upon which a certain number of the evicted tenants on the Ponsonby Estate purchased their holdings under Section 13 of the Land Purchase Act of 1891, giving, if possible, the number of such purchasing tenants and the terms agreed upon and sanctioned by the Land Commission; and whether any of the instalments have yet become due, and if there has been any default?


Advances have been made to 83 former tenants on the Ponsonby estate who had entered into agreements for purchase under the 13th section of the Act of 1891. The total former rental was £2,249 11s. 11d., the total purchase money agreed upon amounted to £40,155, the total advances made amounted to £37,167, the total annuities payable thereon amount to £1,52010s. 10d. The instalments in all these cases are in collection. The entire amount of the interest and instalments payable up to May 1 last, being the last gale day, has been paid with the exception of £24 16s. 4d. due by two purchasers in respect of the May instalment.

MR. BRODRICK (Surrey, Guildford)

Have any re-instatements of the tenants on this estate occurred since the expiry of the 13th section of the Land Act 1891?


I cannot answer that without notice.
