HC Deb 26 May 1891 vol 353 c1078

I beg to ask the Attorney General whether it was lawful, by Section 84 of 6 and 7 Will. 4, c. 71 (an Act for the Commutation of Tithes, 1836), to make distress, where necessary, in respect of any lands in the possession of any person of the persuasion of the people called Quakers, not only upon the goods, chattels, and effects of such person on the premises, but elsewhere, wherever they might be found; and whether this section, dealing exceptionally with Quakers, has been repealed or modified by the Tithe Recovery Act of the present Session?


In answer to the hon. Member's question, I have to say that Section 84 of the Tithe Act, 1836, is expressly repealed by the 11th section of the Tithe Act of the present Session.
