HC Deb 07 April 1892 vol 3 c874
SIR J. M'KENNA (Monaghan, S.)

I beg to ask the Attorney General whether an Irish Member of Parliament, who has his usual place of residence in Ireland, and a residence in London only in respect to his Parliamentary duties, is liable to the payment of Inhabited House Duty in respect to such last-mentioned residence; and if there are any, and what, exemptions from such payments; and, if so, under what law or authority?


In answer to the hon. Member, I have to say that Members of Parliament are not exempted under the circumstances mentioned from the payment of Inhabited House Duty, if, in fact, they are in occupation of a house liable to such payment.
