HC Deb 13 June 1872 vol 211 c1684

asked, If it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to lay upon the Table of the House before the close of this Session, the Land Returns moved for elsewhere, and promised in this House, under the title of the "New Domesday Book;" and, whether those Returns will distinguish all the land held in mortmain by corporate owners, viz., Ecclesiastical, Charitable, Collegiate, Municipal, and belonging to Hospitals and Chartered Companies?


said, in reply, that the Returns in question were being prepared upon information contained in the valuation lists, corrected as far as possible by the knowledge and information obtained by the clerks of the different unions, and as far as possible the Returns would distinguish all the land held in mortmain by ecclesiastical, charitable, collegiate and municipal corporations, and belonging also to hospitals and chartered companies.
