§ MAJOR JAMESON (Clare, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland is he aware that the valuation of the premises of Mr. Martin Haier, of Kiltrellig, Kilbaha, county Clare, has been raised from £2 7s. to £9 10s.; and will he say on what principle such revisions are made by the Inland Revenue?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The rateable valuation of these premises has been increased, as stated. The necessity for a revision of the valuation, consequent upon alterations and additions to the premises, was brought before the Commissioner of Valuation by the clerk of the union, and was carried out in accordance with the principles laid down in the Valuation Acts. It was open to the individual named to appeal against the revised valuation, and I understand he has done so.
