HC Deb 29 May 1894 vol 24 c1525
MR. S. SMITH (Flintshire)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether the Board of Agriculture have issued an Order for the redemption of the tithes on property situate on the west side of High Street, in Rhyl; and whether, in such case, the owners of property there which has not hitherto paid tithe are liable to contribute towards the fund for redemption?


An Order for the redemption of the tithe rentcharge, with which the property referred to was chargeable, was made on the 7th of March, 1893, under Section 5 of the Tithe Act, 1878, which provides for compulsory redemption where the land is divided into such numerous plots as to render it impossible for any further apportionment of the rentcharge to be conveniently made. The fact that although the owners of portions of the property chargeable have not hitherto been called upon to contribute their quota of the rentcharge would not affect their liability to pay their proper share of the redemption money.
