Extent1 item
DescriptionHe writes to warn Balfour of the inadequacy of the provisions in the present draft of his Coercion Bill. 'Everything is guarded in the interests of the creditors', he maintains, and 'the qualifications are so numerous that no one will be able to read into them anything to the efficient protection of the tenants'. In short, the Bill will 'enormously strengthen the position of the landlords'. As the Gladstonians are 'preparing for a great campaign' on coercion, Balfour runs the risk of giving 'the game into their hands'
