HC Deb 28 November 1893 vol 18 cc1908-9
MR. LEGH (Lancashire, S.W., Newton)

I beg to ask the Comptroller of the Household whether any payments have yet been made by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners to the incumbents of the benefices set out in the Schedule to "The Winwick Rectory Act, 1884"; and, if not, whether he can state how soon the incumbents may expect to receive any payment under the provisions of the Act in question?


No payment has as yet been made, as the Ecclesiastical Commissioners have only received during the last few weeks sufficient capital to repay the advances which had been made by them under the provisions of the Act. The Commissioners are, however, about, to take steps with a view to the distribution of a small surplus which is expected to accrue during the year ending October 31, 1894.
