§ MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners contemplate taking any action in regard to those landlords in the West of Ireland and elsewhere who, under any condition or at any price, refuse to sell to their tenants under the Land Act of 1903.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that they have no knowledge, other than that which may be gained from the public Press, that there are any landlords in the West of Ireland or elsewhere, to whom the terms of the Question apply. If there be any such, the Commissioners have no power to interfere.
