§ MR. BENTINCK
said, he rose to ask Her Majesty's Government, Whether the Ecclesiastical Commissioners have taken nay and what proceedings for considering the claims of the non-capitular Members of Cathedral and Collegiate Churches which have been presented under the provisions of the Ecclesiastical Commission Act Passed during the last Session?
§ MR. MOWBRAY
said, in reply, that in the course of the autumn an application was received from several non-capitular members of cathedral and collegiate churches on the subject to which the hon. Member referred. When the Ecclesiastical Commissioners re-assembled on the meeting of Parliament in February, a Select Committee was appointed to consider the matter, and certain queries were prepared, which were now in progress of being answered.
