§ * SIR JOHN COLOMB (Great Yarmouth)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, if, before the Report stage of the Irish Land Bill, he will circulate, for the information of Members, copies of the Schedule (commonly known as the Pink Schedule) used by the Land Commission in fixing judicial rents?
§ * MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The copy of the Pink Schedule as now used by the Land Commission will be found on page 675 of the Appendix to the Report from the Select Committee on the Lands Act (Ireland), 1894. Since the issue of the Report the Assistant Commissioners have been required to set out, opposite paragraph 14, the capital value of any improvements found to be the property of the tenant, and the annual deduction made in respect thereof. I have caused a number of copies of the Pink Schedule to be placed in the library for the convenience of hon Members.
