HC Deb 08 July 1903 vol 125 cc32-3

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will arrange to afford an opportunity for the discussion of a measure proposing to remedy the defects and powers existing under the present terminable leasehold system of tenure if a Bill dealing with this subject is introduced by a private Member.


I regret I cannot encourage the idea of opportunity being found for the discussion of a private Member's Bill at this period of the session, and even if I were not barred by that consideration I could not give an answer in respect of a Bill which I have not yet had the advantage of seeing.

MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)

Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that a Bill dealing with this subject has been introduced for the last ten years?

[No answer was returned.]
