HC Deb 03 November 1902 vol 113 c1402

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received from the Westport Rural District Council a report setting forth a solution of the Land Question on the lines of compulsory purchase, and an equitable division of the waste grazing lands, and whether he can state if he is prepared to give effect to the recommendations in this report.


I have nothing to add to my repeated repudiations of compulsory purchase and impracticable projects for taking away the property of large farmers.


Will the right hon. Gentleman undertake to introduce into his Land Bill a Clause dealing with waste grazing lands?

[No answer was returned.]
