HC Deb 09 August 1904 vol 139 c1565

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whet her he is aware that at a recent hearing before Mr. Justice FitzGerald, the rent of the holding of Mr. Patrick Ahern, Ballylough, Mitchelstown, which had been fixed at £44 15s. by the Sub-Commission, was raised to £47 2s. 6d.; and if he will state whether any fresh evidence as to value was given before the Court, if the holding was inspected, and by whom.


The Land Commission Court decides judicially in each case after hearing the evidence of the parties upon consideration of the report of the valuers, and of all the circumstances of the case, holding and district. I cannot further discuss the decisions of the Judicial Commissioners.
