HC Deb 04 August 1906 vol 162 c1798

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that doubts have been thrown on the qualifications and validity of appointment of the local registration of title for county Cork under The Local Registration of Title (Ireland) Act, 1891; will he say if fees are collected from applicants for registration of their titles and from transferees of charges on registered land in respect of transfers; are these fees collected in cash or by means of stamps, and to what account are they paid; under what authority, statutory or otherwise, are these fees collected, and by whom; and is their collection with the approval of the Irish Government.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) I beg to refer the hon. and learned Member to the Answer given by the Attorney-General for Ireland to his Question on this subject on Thursday last. That Answer details the statutory authority under which fees are collected. The approval of the Government to their collection is not necessary.
