§ MR. T. P. O'CONNOR
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the latest Governmental printed publication of the tenement valuation of Ireland, sold in Government offices, dates back more than twenty years, and is sold at about 3s. 6d. per volume; and, whether he will order a publication of the present tenement valuation, and at a price to bring it within the range of average taxpayers?
§ MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
The printed publication of the tenement valuation of Ireland dates back more than 20 years, and is sold at the price stated per volume. The valuation in force for public and local taxation and other purposes is in manuscript, and is amended annually, the total valuation of the land, however, remaining practically unaltered. I am not satisfied of the necessity to republish this work, which could only be done at heavy cost to the public.
