HC Deb 09 August 1894 vol 28 cc475-6

On behalf of the hon. Member for North Fermanagh, I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury can he say how many cases remain still undisposed of within the Lough Erne drainage area in which applications have been made by landowners to have increased rents placed upon tenants in respect of alleged drainage benefits to their holdings; what was the estimated annual amount of such benefit in the cases already disposed of by the Board of Works Commissioners; and what was the actual annual increased rent imposed?


I am informed that no applications in this case remain undisposed of. The increased value of the lands, as estimated by the Board of Works at the inquiry after the completion of the works, is £1,503 5s. 3d., and this is the amount that the tenants pay by way of increased rent.
