HC Deb 23 July 1897 vol 51 cc900-1

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if it is a fact that there is a further falling off in the number of applications for loans lodged in the year 1896–7 under the Land Law (Ireland) Act 1881, Section 80; and could he state what is the number of applications lodged, and how many passed?


The hon. Member has made a mistake in referring to Section 80 of the Act of 1881, as the Act contains only 62 sections. If he will correct the mistake I will endeavour to have the information obtained.
