§ MR. O'DOHERTY (Donegal, N.)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether, owing to the custom of the sale of tenant-right and the local and competitive value of the right of occupation in Ulster, land in Ulster is subjected to more than double the amount of Death Duties levied out of land of equal value elsewhere in the Three Kingdoms; and, whether, in his 1268 financial arrangements, he can see his way to remedy the grievance alleged to exist? The hon. Member explained that the expression "land of equal value" in the Question meant "land of the same quality."
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
, in reply, said, this appeared to him to be a subject of some intricacy, and one which required explanation. With the permission of the hon. Member, he was anxious to defer giving him an answer until he had taken an opportunity of consulting the Inland Revenue and the Irish Authorities.
