HC Deb 02 July 1902 vol 110 cc537-8

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received a resolution from the Leitrim County Council praying to have peasant proprietorship established on the Morley Estate and other estates in the West of Ireland; and what steps, if any, he proposes to take to give effect to this resolution.


Yes, Sir, the resolution has been received. The steps necessary to be taken with a view to effect sales to the tenants under the Land Purchase Acts are locally well known; but it does not rest with the Government to initiate such steps.
