HC Deb 16 July 1903 vol 125 cc854-5
MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)

To ask Mr. Attorney-General for Ireland whether, in the case of a bankrupt limited owner whose rents were collected up to 1894 by the English Court of Bankruptcy, the bankrupt's debts being afterwards paid by an insurance company, who now collect the rents of the estate, the limited owner or the insurance company will have the right to sell under the Land Bill.

(Answered by Mr. Atkinson.) This Question could not possibly be answered without a full knowledge of the facts. † See (4) Debates, cxxiv., 1382. The insurance company may be, and possibly are, mortgagees in possession, when they could sell.
