HC Deb 18 March 1867 vol 186 cc3-4

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?


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.
