§ MR. T. ELLIS (Merionethshire)
I beg to ask the hon. Member for the Penrith Division of Cumberland, as one of the Charity Commissioners for England and Wales, when the Report of the Assistant Commissioner appointed to inquire into the charities of Denbighshire will be issued; and when a similar inquiry into the charities of other counties will be instituted?
MR. J. W. LOWTHER
It is not proposed to issue the Report on any one parish until the work of inquiring into all the parishes in the county of Denbigh is completed. It is not expected that this work will be completed before several months. The Commissioners have not at present been furnished by the Treasury with the requisite authority for such an expenditure as would be necessary for the purpose of holding similar inquiries into the charities of other counties.
