HC Deb 29 March 1906 vol 154 cc1551-2
MR. BARRIE (Londonderry, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, seeing the delay in completing purchases under the Land Act of 1903, the sales under it having already exceeded £30,000,000 sterling, and seeing that, as at present arranged, only £5,000,000 sterling are annually available for the purposes of the Act, he will, in order to pay for purchases already arranged and to encourage further purchases, represent to His Majesty's Treasury the necessity for arranging that £10,000,000 of stock be issued annually so long as may be necessary.


£10,000,000 of stock will be raised in the coming year if necessary.
