HC Deb 22 June 1903 vol 124 cc81-2

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state the effect of the abolition of the quit rent on the instalments to be paid by the tenant under the Irish Land Bill on £100 rental, and will he also lay a Paper showing the comparative effect on the tenant's instalments under the present Bill and previous Purchase Acts.


The effect of the abolition of the perpetual rent charge will best be illustrated by a re-issue of the Return, No. 183 of this session, with an additional column showing figures under the altered conditions. With respect to instalments under previous Purchase Acts I would refer the hon. Member to Return No. 186 of 1902.
