THE EARL OF BELMORE
My Lords, as I understand there is no objection to the granting of the Return for which I have given notice to move, I will simply submit the Motion without further observations.
§ Moved, for (1) A Return of the total amount of advances made to occupying tenants in Ireland, under the various Acts relating to land purchase since the passing of the Irish Land Act, 1870, to 31st March, 1903 (exclusive of tenants of glebe lands]; (2) A similar Return of the total amount of repayments made by such purchasers.—(The Earl of Belmore.)
§ THE EARL OF DENBIGH
The Government have no objection to the granting of the Return, but I am afraid it will 1249 not be possible to present it for ten days or a fortnight.
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
