HC Deb 02 May 1904 vol 134 cc101-2

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if his attention has been drawn to the fact that application to schedule certain poor districts in Ireland as congested districts has been refused; and, f so, will he state what action he proposes to take in the matter, in view of the provisions of the Land Act of 1903.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) Congestion outside the scheduled districts can be dealt with under the Land Act of 1903. I refer the hon. Member to Section 6 (4) and (5), Section 7, Section 12, Section 21, and Section 75 of that Act.
