HC Deb 23 June 1904 vol 136 c1006
MR. MURPHY (Kerry, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what is the object for which the Viceregal Commission has been appointed in connection with Trinity College lands; and how are the tenants concerned to secure the presentation of their views before the Commission.


The objects of the inquiry are set out in the Warrant appointing the Commission, which has been widely published in the Press. The Commissioners are authorised to examine all persons whom they shall consider to be possessed of information on the subject. The procedure to be followed will be that usually adopted on the occasion of such Commissions.


I wanted the right hon. Gentleman to tell me the real meaning 'of this.


If the hon. Member will carry his memory back to the time when the Committee was appointed, he will remember that the suggestion came from the other side of the House.

MR. REDDY (King's County, Birr)

Was it a shelving Commission?
