§ MR. MEAGHER (Kilkenny, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in the case of tenants who have purchased under the Land Purchase Act of 1903, and in which purchase sporting rights have been reserved to the landlord, such reservation will give the landlord the right of taking any persons he likes along with him over the grounds of the tenants without his having first received permission from the tenants to take such persons with him.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The answer is in the affirmative. I would refer the hon. Member to subsection (4) of Section 13 of the Irish Land Act, 1903, which expressly empowers the landlord to authorise any persons to exercise the right of sporting.
