HL Deb 20 February 1883 vol 276 cc397-8

said, with respect to a Notice which had been given by his noble Friend (Lord Waveney), he understood that his noble Friend's Motion referred to certain resolutions passed at a tenant right conference at Belfast. His noble Friend had, however, indicated those Resolutions merely as Nos. 1 and 2. He believed that they had not been laid before the House, although, probably, they were in the hands of the Government. Five or six Resolutions had been passed at the Conference, and he thought the noble Lord ought to recite those he intended to call attention to at length. He did not know what Her Majesty's Government meant to do with respect to those Resolutions; but, in any case, he should feel bound to give them a decided opposition.


said, that the resolutions as to which he proposed to suggest legislation were only two. The first was to the effect that when a judicial rent had been fixed it should be payable from the gale day after the application; and the next was that the rent payable by leaseholders should come under the jurisdiction of the Commissioners.

House adjourned at a quarter before Five o'clock, to Thursday next, a quarter past Ten o'clock.
