HC Deb 26 January 1897 vol 45 c510

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he considered the representations made to him by a deputation asking that the grievances of town tenants in Ireland should be remedied; and whether he will introduce a Bill to amend the existing law?


I have no reason to believe that the representation made to me by the deputation in question referred to a grievance confined to Ireland. The Government cannot undertake to introduce a Bill dealing with the subject, and I thought I had already made this plain to the hon. Member.
