§ SIR THOMAS ESMONDE (Wexford, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if there is any objection to tenants, who have purchased their holdings in Ireland paying their half-yearly instalments to the Land Commission by means of Postal Orders; and if, in view of the inconvenience caused by the present system to tenant purchasers, who live at a distance from branches of the Bank of Ireland, he will make arrangements enabling them to make their payments through the Post Office.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
Where tenant purchasers cannot conveniently lodge the instalments of their annuities in a bank, no objection is made to payment by Postal Orders sent to the Bank of Ireland with the Receivable Orders. It is doubtful whether the inconvenience alleged prevails to an appreciable extent. Local branches of all Irish Banks accept lodgment of the instalments for advice to the Bank of Ireland in Dublin.
