§ MR. GINNELL (Westmeath, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state the number of cases in which tenants, dissatisfied with the terms of sale offered to them, have been compelled, under Section 19 of the Land Act of 1903, to buy their holdings on those terms; will the Report of the Estates Commissioners show these cases; and when will that Report be ready.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. BRYCE,) Aberdeen, S.
The Estates Commissioners inform me that in no case up to March 31st, 1906, has a tenant been compulsorily declared a purchaser under Section 19 of the Act. The forthcoming Report of the Commissioners, which they hope to submit during the present month, will contain a reference to the working of the section.
