§ MR. THOMAS O'DONNELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether it is proposed to take any steps to carry out the suggestions of the Trinity College Commissioners for the purpose of facilitating the sale of Trinity College land; what rental does Trinity College receive annually from Kerry land; what price has Trinity College demanded of landlord lessees for the redemption of head rents; and will he explain what has been done with the £5,000 per annum voted for Trinity College at the passage of the Land Act of 1903.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
I have already said that the questions raised in the Report of the Commission are receiving the most careful consideration of the Government. The Report shows that the rental of the college estates in Kerry is £10,699. I have no information as to the third inquiry, but in the absence of an agreement between the parties the Judicial Commissioner has power to fix the redemption price. The three yearly sums of £5,000 have been invested as prescribed by Section 39.
§ MR. FLAVIN
Is not Trinity College demanding from their tenants 27½ years purchase in addition to the three years bonus?
§ MR. FLAVIN
I have seen a public communication to that effect. It is known, too, all over the country.
