§ MR. HERBERT LEWIS
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, whether, in accordance with the recommendation of the Select Committee on Woods and Forests in 1890, the Commissioners of Woods have been empowered to treat all religious denominations on a footing of equality in regard to donations out of the income of the land revenues for religious and educational purposes?
§ MR. HANBURY
By Section 5 of the Crown Lands Act 1894 (57 and 58 Vic, Cap. 43) the Commissioners of Woods may, with the consent of the Treasury, make out of the income of the Land Revenues of the Crown, donations of money for any religious or educational purposes connected with land under the management of the Commissioners, or for the purposes of any hospital, infirmary or cemetery. The power given by this section was obtained in accordance with the recommendation of the Select Committee of 1890.
