HC Deb 09 May 1889 vol 335 c1544
MR. THOMAS ELLIS (Merionethshire)

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether Inland Revenue officers can, consistently with their duty to the Government, be members of county or town councils; and, whether they can act as collectors or receivers of tithe rent charge.


Inland Revenue officers are not allowed to become candidates for county councils—vide Treasury Minute of December, 1888. No objection is made to an Inland Revenue officer being appointed a town councillor, but he would not be permitted to act as a collector or receiver of tithe rent-charges.
