HC Deb 19 May 1896 vol 40 c1683

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, (1) whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce a Bill dealing with town tenants in Ireland; (2) whether he is aware that petitions from over forty towns in Ireland have been presented to this House asking for protective legislation; and, (3) whether he can. introduce clauses in the Land Bill to give tenants in towns the same protection for their improvements and tenancy as is afforded to agricultural tenants?


The answer to the first and third paragraphs is in the negative, have no information as to the second paragraph.
