§ 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.
§ *MR. GOSCHEN
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.
