1 augustus 1870: Irish Land Act geeft recht op vergoeding aan verjaagde 'tenant'

ID: 187008011493

Ireland's Landlord and Tenant Act, passed by William Gladstone's government, attempted to address a key grievance. The act provided for compensation to tenants evicted by landlords and it gave legal protection to customary tenant right. Tenants were also allowed to purchase their holdings if they could afford the cost.
