HC Deb 23 July 1896 vol 43 cc493-4

Section thirteen of the Purchase of Land (Ireland) Act, 1891, is hereby re-enacted, and shall have effect with the modifications following:—

  1. (a) Twelve month. of the commencement of this Act shall be substituted for six months of the passing of this Act;
  2. (b) The section shall not extend to a holding the tenancy of which has been determined since the fifth day of August one thousand eight hundred and ninety-one.

MR. J. P. FARRELL (Cavan, W.) moved to omit Sub-section (b). He found that 5,000 tenants had been evicted since the date mentioned, and it would seriously affect the settlement of this difficult question if those tenants were excluded from the operation of the clause.


thought the landlords would be wise in their own interest to accept the Amendment.

MR. EDWARD CARSON (Dublin University)

We do not object to the Amendment. ["Hear, hear!"]


I desire to offer an expression of thanks to the right hon. Gentleman for that statement. ["Hear, hear!"]

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
