HC Deb 14 May 1877 vol 234 c858

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, as he stated in reply to a question addressed to him on April the 23rd that he was in communication with the Charity Commissioners as to what steps should be taken in reference to abuses connected with the administration of certain parochial charities in the City of London, which have been described in the recent Report of these Commissioners, he can now inform the House whether the Government have come to any decision as to the course they propose to adopt with the object of remedying these abuses?


in reply, said, he was unable to say yet that any decision had been arrived at, except so far as this—that it was quite clear that matters could not be left as they now were. The Government, accordingly, were in communication with the Commissioners on the subject.
