HC Deb 01 December 1893 vol 19 c258
MR. CARVELL WILLIAMS (Notts.,) Mansfield

I beg to ask the Comptroller of the Household, as an Ecclesiastical Commissioner, whether the Return of the Revenues of the Church of England, No. 287, 1891, includes sums received for the support of the Established clergy, the maintenance of churches and services, or other Church purposes, under local or other Acts of Parliament authorising the levying of rates or other exactions in lieu of tithes, Easter dues, or other statutory or prescriptive payments; and whether the Return includes pew rents, fees, or offertories received by the clergy?


The Return in question refers solely to the income derived from property, and includes the income secured to the incumbents of certain benefices under local or other Acts of Parliament. It does not include receipts from pew rents, fees, or offertories.
