In this paper I do not propose to deal with any principles as applied to the Irish land question, except those which have already been conceded by Parliament. With respect to one branch of the land question—the encouragement and facilities for the creation of peasant proprietors—a very elaborate inquiry has been made by Mr. Shaw Lefevre's committee, to ascertain the impediments to the successful working of what are called the Bright clauses. I propose to state the results of a scientific investigation, on principles
of economic science and jurisprudence, of the impediments to the working of some of the other clauses of the Land Act.
