HC Deb 07 July 1903 vol 124 c1524

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland how, upon the sale to the Land Commission of an entailed family mansion-house and demesne land by a tenant for life, the purchase money will be dealt with and how the rights of the remaindermen will be preserved; and whether, upon such mansion-house and demesne land being resold to the tenant for life in consideration of a rent-charge, they will, subject to the rent-charge, be subject to the original entail and the rights of the remaindermen secured to them, and how this will be accomplished.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The purchase money will be paid over to the trustees of the settlement, to be held by them on the trust of that settlement. The intention of the Bill is that the demesne or lands re-purchased shall be held free and discharged from the trusts of the settlement, but the question is, with others affecting the matter, under consideration.
