HC Deb 07 March 1898 vol 54 c837
MR. G. LAMBERT (Devon, South Molton)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state the average annual value per acre of agricultural land in Ireland, the average amount of rate in the pound on such land, and what is the proportion of the proposed new grant of £730,000 that will be distributed to holdings of over £15 per year annual rental.


Perhaps the hon. Member will repeat this Question to-morrow. I very much doubt, however, whether the last portion could be answered without an elaborate investigation, which would not be justified by the value of the results obtained.
