§ MR. W. ALLAN (Gateshead)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the estimated value of the endownments now held by Noncomformist Churches in Wales which they held prior to 1703?
§ MR. ASQUITH
I have no official information on this subject. As a matter of history, I believe that there were not more than about 50 Nonconformist 558 Chapels in Wales at the date mentioned, and no doubt the great bulk of such endowments as the Nonconformist Churches in Wales enjoy are of a considerably later origin.
§ MR. J. G. TALBOT
Can the right hon. Gentleman give us any idea of the amount of Nonconformist Endowments since 1703?
