HC Deb 05 May 1879 vol 245 c1717

asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, If the proposed scheme for defraying part of the expenses of the Charity Commission has received the approval of the Board of Commissioners or emanates from one or more of its individual members; when it is proposed to put it in force; and, if a Copy of it, together with the Correspondence relating to the subject, will be laid before Parliament?


, in reply, said, he had been asked by his right hon. Friend to answer this Question. The proposed scheme, as he stated in the discussion the other evening, was a sketch scheme of his own. It was submitted to the Commissioners, and embodied in a draft Report by the Chairman of that Body. It was proposed to put the scheme in force as soon as matters were arranged. Until they were in a position to submit the scheme to the House, he did not think it would be well to place the Correspondence, which was necessarily imperfect, on the Table.
