§ MR. CHARLEY
said, he wished to know, Whether the Government thought it proper for the impropriate tithe rent-charge to continue to exist after the tithe rent-charge now in the possession of the Church had been merged in the land?
The Government have had no occasion to consider this subject in connection with the Irish Church Bill. The two questions were entirely distinct. The hon. Member may, perhaps, see an analogy between Church property and private property, which we on this side of the House do not perceive so clearly. On this account 1975 the Government have had no occasion to take this matter into consideration in connection with the Irish Church Bill.
