I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can say what was the average price paid for the purchase of land all over Ireland from the year 1885 to the year 1903, and what was the average price paid in the county of Limerick during the same period; and what was the price paid all over Ireland from November, 1903, to the latest date of return and during the same period in the County of Limerick, that is, the average price paid under the present Land Purchase Act, this word price meaning the number of years purchase.


I must ask the hon. Member to await the issue of the Return ordered on the 7th instant, on the Motion of the hon. Member for Cork, which will shortly be laid on the Table. That Return will contain the in formation which he requires.
