§ MR. P. FFRENCH (Wexford, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he will introduce a clause into the promised Land Bill allowing the tenant, in case of eviction for non-payment of rent, to set off his interest in the holding against the arrears of rent?
§ MR. DOOGAN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, if his attention has been called to the fact that dissatisfaction exists in Ireland owing to the working of Section 7 of the Land Law (Ireland) Act, 1887; and whether, in the promised Bill for the amendment of the Irish Land Acts, he proposes to repeal that clause?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
I can give no undertaking that the Bill will contain the proposals suggested in these questions.
