§ CAPTAIN DONELAN (Cork, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that a large number of representative public boards in Ireland have recently adopted resolutions urging the necessity of facilitating peasant proprietary by a system of compulsory sale; and whether he will consider the desirability of giving effect to this general expression of Irish public opinion.
§ MR. G. W. BALFOUR
Representations on this subject have been received from a number of public bodies. I am not prepared to propose legislation to give effect to these resolutions.
§ CAPTAIN DONELAN
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the system of compulsory sale has the support of many of the Ulster Unionist Members?
