§ MR. GINNELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, in view of the number of schemes now in preparation under the Labourers Acts, and the desirability of taking for the purposes of those Acts 1446 untenanted and non-residential land so far as available, will a copy of the whole or of part of the Return of the untenanted land be sent to each rural council in whose district land of that class exists.
It is not the practice of the Government to distribute Parliamentary Returns to local authorities gratuitously. The Return in question is on sale to the public, price 3s. 3d., and it is open to any rural district council which may be interested in it to purchase a copy for official use.
