HC Deb 25 April 1899 vol 70 cc529-30
MR. MACALEESE (Monaghan, N)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland has his attention been drawn to the action of Sub-Commissioners Bailey, Byers, and Williams where, in fixing the fair rents of two adjoining farms on the estate of the trustees of G. J. Hunter, the tenant of one of the farms was allowed 4½ more percentage of deductions than the other, the farms being of almost equal quality; and does the Government propose to take any action in the matter?


My attention has been drawn to the cases of the two holdings referred to by a communication received from the honourable Member. The matter, however, is not one in which the Government can interfere.
