HC Deb 06 August 1894 vol 28 cc142-3

I beg to ask the Parliamentary Charity Commissioner whether the Charity Commissioners will lay upon the Table of this House a Return giving the total income from all sources, under the London Parochial Charities Act, 1883, together with the details of the expenditure and the apportionment of the funds, or whether the Charity Commissioners will publish a detailed statement of such income, expenditure, and apportionment in their next annual Report?


The Charity Commissioners will offer no objection to a Motion for a Return of the accounts, receipts, and expenditure rendered to the Commissioners by the Trustees of the City of London Parochial Charities since the creation of that body. The Charity Commissioners do not propose to publish such a statement in their next Annual Report, but they do propose to include in that Report a complete account of the capital stock and cash which have been transferred and paid to the official Trustees of charitable funds in pursuance of the provisions of the central scheme by which the Trustees of the City of London Parochial Charities are constituted, and of the application and appropriation of those funds to the purposes prescribed by The City of Loudon Parochial Charities Act, 1883.
