HL Deb 06 July 1880 vol 253 cc1747-8

wished to explain, in reference to the Motion of the noble Earl (the Earl of Annesley) last evening for Returns as to Civil Bill Ejectments, that he now proposed to make the Returns in two parts. The first would be the Return moved for by Mr. J. Low-ther in the House of Commons in the last Parliament, and which would be laid on their Lordships' Table in a few days; and the second would be the additional Returns down to the 30th of June last. He hoped that this would be satisfactory to the noble Earl, who he was sorry to see was not then pre-sent. Return, in tabular form, of the number of civil bill ejectments in each county, distinguishing ejectments on the title from those for non-payment of rent, tried and determined in each county in Ireland for each of the three years ending the 31st day of December 1879, exclusive of ejectments for premises situate in counties of cities, boroughs, and towns, under the Act 9th Geo. IV. chap. 82., or the Towns Improvement (Ireland) Act, 1854, or any local Act:—Ejectments entered: On Title; Non-payment of Rent: Decrees granted: Decrees executed: Dismisses: Cases otherwise disposed of.

Ordered to be laid before the House.

House adjourned at a quarter past Seven o'clock, to Thursday next, half past Ten o'clock.
