HC Deb 06 July 1903 vol 124 cc1408-9
MR. MURPHY (Kerry, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether any provision is made for the sale of tolls of fairs by landowners whose lands may be sold under the present Bill; and, if not, will he insert a provision giving the local authority of the district where such tolls are levied the right to purchase same for the benefit of the locality.


Tolls, such as are mentioned in the Question, are altogether outside the scope of the Land Bill. The 31st Section of the Local Government Act of 1898 enables an Urban District Council to purchase such tolls in the most important instances.
