§ MR. HOGAN
I beg to ask the Parliamentary Charity Commissioner whether any further light has been thrown upon the Covent Garden Theatre Fund since the subject was mentioned last Session; and whether any steps are in contemplation, by amending Act or otherwise, to release this valuable fund and apply it to the charitable objects which its original founders had in view?
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY CHARITY COMMISSIONER (Mr. J. GRANT LAWSON, Yorkshire, N.R., Thirsk and Malton)
As the hon. Member has been 730 already informed, this Fund is not within the jurisdiction of the Charity Commissioners, who are not aware whether any such further information has been obtained or suck steps taken as are mentioned in the question.
