HC Deb 19 December 1906 vol 167 c1490
MR. GINNELL (Westmeath, N.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, if he will have prepared a Return, made up to date, of all persons to whom bonus has been paid under the Land Act of 1903, showing in respect of each the county in which the land sold is situate, the amount of bonus paid in respect of tenanted and untenanted land respectively, the number of years purchase of rent paid for the former; and will he have this information given periodically in future.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) I beg to refer the hon. Member to my Answer to his Question of 13th instant,†when he asked for a somewhat similar Return. For the reasons then fully stated, the Land Commission do not think it desirable, to give the Return now asked for. Full particulars of the number of years purchase given for tenanted land, and of the prices paid for untenanted land, appear in the Annual Reports of the Land Commission.
