HC Deb 24 May 1894 vol 24 cc1188-9
MR. E. BARRY (Cork Co., S.)

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the Income Tax assessed on cottages built under the Labourers (Ireland) Act in the Clona-kilty Union has been remitted; whether there is any difference in respect of right from exemption of Income Tax on rent of labourers' cottages between Clonakilty and all the other Unions in Ireland; and whether steps will be taken to relieve all the other Unions in Ireland from this tax?


In the case of the Clonakilty Union, the tax has been, after investigation, remitted. With regard to other Unions, the title to relief must depend on the special circumstances of each case. Applications should, in the first instance, be made to the Inland Revenue Office, Dublin.
