§ MR. SHEEHY (Meath, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland when a future tenant pays what he considers an exorbitant rent, and also joins in an agreement to purchase his holding, doing both under protest and under pressure of a writ for arrears, and therefore not voluntarily, and the tenant wants the holding to be impartially valued, will the Land Commissioners sanction such a sale and the payment of a bonus to the landlord in respect of it without getting the holding valued.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WYNDHAM,) Dover
The holding of a future tenant sold under the Act of 1903 comes within the provisions of Sub-section 2 of Section 1 of that Act under which an advance can only be made if the Commissioners are satisfied with the security and consider that the agreed price is equitable.
§ MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)
Then what remedy has the future tenant if he cannot obtain his land at a fair price?
