HC Deb 26 January 1897 vol 45 c499
MR. JOHN ROCHE (Kerry, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant for Ireland whether his attention has been called to a meeting, held in last December, of tenants and owners of land at Ballygar, county Galway, to protest against the tax imposed upon them in consequence of the expenditure incurred in connection with the drainage of the River Suck, which in several cases amounts to more than the letting value of the land; and whether he will take such action as will relieve the people of that district of a tax that they are unable to pay, and thereby allow them to remain in possession of their holdings?


said he answered an exactly similar question yesterday, and he should be glad to tell the hon. Member what his answer was then.
