HC Deb 01 March 1917 vol 90 cc2126-7

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland what steps he proposes to take to compel the owners of the grazing ranches of Toneymore, Coolcraff, Asthna, Ardagullion, and the Manor to comply with the Tillage Order; and will he, in respect of their failure, enter into possession of these lands and offer them to the adjoining tenants for the sowing of crops before 25th March?


In an answer to the hon. Member for North Westmeath on Monday, and an answer to the hon. Member for West Donegal yesterday, I made a full statement as to the duties and intended procedure of the Department of Agriculture in cases of the kind which are dealt with in their questions.
