§ MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)
On behalf of the hon. and learned Member for Dublin University, I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the sum of £100,000 mentioned in the Evicted. Tenants Bill has been arrived at upon any calculation of the probable amounts payable in respect of the interests affected; and whether he will lay such calculations upon the Table of the House before the Second Reading?
MR. J. MORLEY
The hon. Member will understand that this is not a matter open to very accurate calculations. A rough estimate is the nearest approach to accuracy that can be made, and, upon 39 a survey of the facts, I was led to believe that the sum mentioned in the Bill would carry us a long way on the road.
