HC Deb 09 December 1908 vol 198 c479

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that there are hundreds of future or excluded tenants who lost their titles in their farms through evictions and other campaigns with landlords, as in the case of the Cloncurry tenants in Murroe, County Limerick, between the years of 1881 and 1887; and will those tenants be included with the tenants in Part V. of the present Land Bill, so as to have a fair rent fixed under the status of present tenants.


I have no means of ascertaining the number of future or excluded tenants who were evicted between 1881 and 1887. Part V. of the Irish Land Bill applies only to cases in which a present tenancy was determined after the passing of the Act of 1887.
