HC Deb 03 April 1905 vol 144 c132
MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)

I beg to ask Mr. Attorney-General for Ireland whether, in the case of the creation of tenancies in farms for the purposes of sale to the son or other relative of the landlord, the agreement in the transaction sets forth the date of such tenancy; and, if not, will a direction be given that for the purpose of preventing such sales the date of the creation of the tenancy must be given.


The Estates Commissioners report that where the tenancy is described as a tenancy from year to year, it is their practice to ask for further particulars as to the date of its creation and for the production of the instrument, if any, creating it. These inquiries are made with particular care where the tenancy commenced subsequent to January 1st, 1901.
