HC Deb 07 July 1859 vol 154 cc795-6

said, he wished to ask the Attorney General for Ireland, Whether he intends to recommend to the Government to equalize the suitor's percentage in the Transfer of Land Courts in Ireland down to the rate payable on amounts not exceeding £10,000.


said, the authority of the Government to interfere with the percentage depended upon its being satisfied that the reduced percentage would be sufficient to meet the expenses of the Court. He believed that could not be the case at present, and that no interference could take place without legislation. He had before expressed an opinion on the principle which he still retained, but before making any recommendation, he should communicate with the Judges of the Court.
