HC Deb 26 March 1867 vol 186 c565

said, he wished to ask the hon. Member for East Norfolk, Whether the Tithes of the Whitby Rectory, the purchase of the lessee's interest in which was stated in the Seventeenth Report of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners to have been left to arbitration, have become the property of the Commissioners or not, as no mention is made of any decision in the Eighteenth Report?


replied, that the lessee's interest in the tithes in question had become vested in the Ecclesiastical Commission; but that the actual transfer of those tithes had not been completed until the 28th of November, the day posterior to the date on which the Report referred to was delivered.
