HC Deb 15 June 1903 vol 123 cc936-7

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the gross rental of lands in the Court of the Irish Land Judge in the hands of receivers before the application of the Act of 1896, and the gross rental of lands at present in the hands of such receivers.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The rental of lands in this Court in the hands of receivers in the year 1895 was £793,821. In the year 1902, the latest period for which the figures are at present available, the rental was £449,106. It is right to state that these amounts include the rental of non-agricultural hereditaments as well as agricultural, and of estates managed for other Judges of the Chancery Division where no order for sale has been made.
