HC Deb 14 December 1900 vol 88 c850
MR. DAVID MACIVER (Liverpool, Kirkdale)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether the Kirkdale Industrial Schools, which have long been registered as a place of worship, and in which religious services are held four times weekly, are not, in common with all other charities in a like position, by reason of such registration entitled to claim the same exemption from local rating which is enjoyed by churches and places of worship generally.


I presume that these schools are not exclusively used for public worship, and unless they are so used they would not appear to be entitled to the exemption to which my hon. friend refers.
