§ MR. RADCLIFFE COOKE
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he can give the amount of the grants made by the State to Nonconformist Bodies since the reign of Queen Anne up to the present date?
§ SIR J. T. HIBBERT
I would refer the hon. Member to the Return No. 650 of 1845, giving information on this subject for the period of 1800 to 1844, and to the Paper No. 420 of 1893 in continuation of the former. I am afraid that I could not justify the heavy expenses and enormous labour which would be involved by a historical research carried back beyond 1800.
