§ MR. JAMES O'KELLY (Roscommon, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the agreement for the sale of Mrs. Mahon's estate, Strokestown, county Roscommon, makes provision for giving reductions in their rent to sub-tenants in the same proportion as those given to the middlemen on the same property.
§ (Answered by Mr. Bryce). I am informed by the Estates Commissioners that the reply to this Question is in the negative. For an explanation of the position of sub-tenants in regard to purchase, I beg to refer to my replies to the hon. Member's Questions of 5th November.‡
