HC Deb 21 June 1906 vol 159 cc375-6

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland to state by whom is the material for the Return of Untenanted Land being collected; what precautions are taken to make the Return full and accurate, and especially to verify an owner's assertion that any particular land is demesne or is tenanted, when prima facie it is neither; and can he now fix the date at which the Return will be ready.


The Return in question is being prepared by the Commissioner of Valuation from the valuation lists for the present year, in which the area and valuation of every agricultural holding in Ireland is set out. The Commissioner informs me that every care is being taken to make the return accurate and complete, and he anticipates that it will he finished by the end of the present month.
