HC Deb 04 May 1868 vol 191 c1693

said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, What are the intentions of the Government with respect to the introduction of a Bill to exempt Hospitals, Sunday Schools (whether annexed to places of worship or otherwise), and other schools and charitable institutions generally from Poor's and other rates?


Sir, the vote at which the House arrived the other night on the Motion of the hon. Member for Chippenham (Mr. Goldney) has very much affected the position of the question with respect to charities; and I shall be obliged to the hon. Gentleman if, upon a subsequent occasion, he will repeat the Question. In the meantime I will endeavour to communicate to him the information he seeks as soon as I am in a position to do so.
