§ MR. MACALEESE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland how many second term cases of judicial rents have been fixed in County Monaghan? What is the average percentage of reductions made in those cases? And in how many have appeals been lodged by landlords against the decisions?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
Rents have been fixed for a second statutory term in 33 cases from the County Monaghan. The average percentage of reductions in the rents so fixed, as compared with rent fixed for first statutory term, is 23.6 per cent. Notices of appeal on behalf of the landlords have been lodged in 13 of these cases.
