HC Deb 06 April 1905 vol 144 c655

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the instructions for the guidance of inspectors, dated February, 1904, which have been cancelled by those dated February 9th, 1905, will also be presented to Parliament in accordance with the promise of the right hon. Member for Dover; and whether, seeing that the instructions dated February, 1905, only relate to sales to persons other than the Land Commission, any instructions have been issued to inspectors in cases of sales to the Land Commission direct; and, if so, when these instructions will be laid upon the Table.


No, Sir, I do not propose to lay the instructions of February, 1904, which were informal, on the Table of the House. The instructions of February, 1905, have regard to all sales, and are not limited to sales to persons other than the Land Commissioners. They include, in Part II., instructions under Sections 3, 6, and 8 of the Act of 1903.
