§ MR. G. LAMBERT (Devon, South Molton)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what is the approximate acreage of land in Ireland for which fair rents have been fixed 1481 by the Land Commissioners; and what is the approximate average reduction in rent made on such land since 1881?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
Information on the points mentioned in this Question, for the period extending from 1881 to the 31st March, 1897, will be found in the Annual Report of the Commissioners presented to Parliament in August last. The next Annual Report, which will be laid on the Table in due course, will bring the information down to the present date.
