HC Deb 26 July 1866 vol 184 cc1531-2

said, in the absence of his hon. Friend (Mr. Cheetham), he would beg to ask the President of the Poor Law Board, If he has any intention to bring in a Bill, at the commencement of the next Session, to relieve schools set apart for religious instruction upon the Sunday from liability to pay parochial and other rates?


in reply, said, the subject of exemptions from rating was one which had lately attracted a great deal of attention, and it would receive the best consideration of the Government; but he could not undertake to bring in a measure upon it at the beginning of the next Session.
