HC Deb 14 March 1899 vol 68 c783
MR. STOCK (Liverpool, Walton)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to a recent decision affecting the revision of the lay tithe rent charge in Ireland, by which it was set down that owing to the failure of the "Dublin Gazette" to publish the market prices of such commodities as the tithes were estimated on, all reductions obtained since the cessation of such publication were illegal, and the tithe rent payer is in future prevented from applying to the court for revision of his tithes; and whether the Government will take steps to remedy such an injusice?


I am aware of the decision referred to in the Question. The matter is under the consideration of Government, and I hope to be able to deal with it in the course of the present Session.

Forward to
