HC Deb 02 February 1897 vol 45 c1052

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the tenants in the townlands of Moylemore and Moylebeg, on the estate of Major Leslie, county Monaghan, have applied to the Irish Land Commisioners to purchase the landlord's mortgage on their holdings; and that the Irish Land Commissioners have replied that the recent Irish Land Act does not give them power to deal with such cases; and whether he will bring in a Bill this Session to give relief to tenants such as those referred to?


The Land Commissioners are unable to trace any such application as is referred to in this Question. I have already replied to the second paragraph of the Question.
