HC Deb 08 August 1882 vol 273 c1140

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he will present a separate Return of such of the tables of fees of Burial Boards comprised in the unpublished Returns of 1880 as are in contravention of the seventeenth section of the 20th and 21st Vic. c. 81, which requires that the fees paid to incumbents, clerks, and sextons, shall be extra charges in the consecrated parts of cemeteries only; and, whether he will take steps to secure a revision of such illegal charges?


in reply, said, that the question was one for the Courts of Law; but he would see what could be done.
