§ MR. J. GILHOOLY (Cork Co., W.)
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that the Poor Law Guardians of the Schull Union sustain a loss of £25 per annum on the residence of the medical officer of health for Schull, income tax on that residence will be remitted?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
This is a matter which should be arranged with the local surveyor of taxes. I am informed that the house in question is assessed on £12 10s. The ground on which remission of the tax is claimed is not known to the local surveyor; but, if the Guardians can satisfy him on this point, the remission will no doubt be given. As a matter of fact, the Duty has not been actually paid for 1892, 1893, or 1894.
