HC Deb 14 March 1904 vol 131 c991

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in cases where occupiers of evicted farms have purchased their holdings through the Land Commission and are now willing to surrender them for a fair consideration, the Estates Commissioners will be prepared to enter into negotiations for their redemption in order to give effect to the intentions of the Land Act, 1903, to reinstate the tenants or their representatives who had been evicted.


It appears to the Estates Commissioners that the Land Commission have no power to give or advance money to redeem the outstanding instalments of a purchase annuity.
