§ MR. E. STRACHEY (Somerset, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what, besides agricultural land, is meant by "hereditament entered as land in the valuation list within the meaning of the Valuation Acts" in Sub-section 4, Clause 34, of the Local Government (Ireland) Bill?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
Hereditaments entered as land in the Valuation List within the meaning of the Valuation Acts would include woods, gardens, and pleasure grounds. The term would also include some parts of railways and canals, but it is not intended that any agricultural grant should be paid in respect of these. There is an Amendment in my name on the Paper excluding the latter.
