§ MR. GINNELL (Westmeath, N.)
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether there are any financial transactions under the control or cognisance of the Treasury, other than those under the Irish Land Act of 1903, in which public money is advanced to one of two joint owners in excess of the gross value of the joint property, and the other joint owner made liable directly, and the ratepayers of the county contingently, for the repayment of this advance with interest; and can he state any other cases in which losses have arisen equal to the losses known to the Treasury to have arisen under the Act of 1903.
(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) As I indicated in answer to a similar Question on the 23rd May last year, I am not aware 55 of any cases such as described in the Question, either under the Irish Land Act, 1903, or any other Act.
