Irish Land Purchase Bill

[per press association.]

London, April 4. Earl Spencer, speaking at Shipton, stigmatised the Irish Land Bill as costly, cumbrous, and unworkable.

Lord R. Churchill has published a letter in the "Morning Post" on the same subject, denouncing it as monstrous to force the measure on unwilling people., He was certain repayment of advances would be repudiated. London, April 6. In his letter to the "Morning Post" on the Irish Land Purchase Bill, Lord R. Churchill declares that if it passes into law it will involve a loss of £20,000,000, while the loss entailed under Lord Ashbourne's holdings Act, 1888, would be only £9,000,000. He considers the security to be given unworthy of trust, and that the scheme of Mr Gladstone is much superior to the proposal under consideration.
