HC Deb 04 May 1903 vol 121 c1201
MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South Molton)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland upon what principle will the first selection be made of Irish tenants to participate in the reductions of payment proposed by the Land Bill.


The Land Bill deals chiefly with the purchase of estates. The question of selection does not arise. Bargains, if within the scope of the measure, will be sanctioned in accordance with priority of completion.
