HC Deb 01 May 1894 vol 24 cc38-9
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?


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 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.


Who are to be the arbitrators?


Their names will appear in the Bill.
