Vol. 136 No. 2

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Assessment of Graded Rents.

asked the Minister for Local Government if he has sent a direction to local authorities askingthem not to include children's allowances in calculating the weekly income for the purpose of assessment of rent where graded rents are in operation.

No directions have been issued to local authorities in regard to the calculation of incomes for rent-fixing purposes. The practice of the local authorities varies in regard to children's allowances, but in all cases deductions are made from the assessable income or from the rent in respect of children and other dependents.
