HC Deb 21 December 1893 vol 20 cc79-80

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, having regard to the vital importance of developing Irish land purchase by occupying tenants on the most appropriate lines, the Government will agree to include in the Reference to the Select Committee on Irish Land Acts a direction to inquire and report as to the working of the several purchase systems up to the present time?

MR. BRYCE (for Mr. J. Morley)

Yes, it is proposed to include among the I subjects of inquiry by the Committee the principle and practice of the administration of the various purchase systems.
