HC Deb 18 February 1904 vol 130 cc238-9
MR. STEVENSON (Suffolk, Eye)

To ask the Parliamentary Charity Commissioner when the last scheme relating to the Wilby Town Estates, Suffolk, was sealed, and whether a copy was sent in due form to each of the persons interested.

(Answered by Mr. Griffith-Boscawen.) The last scheme was sealed on the 26th January, 1869, after due notice in compliance with the provisions of the Charitable Trusts Acts. On the 20th January, 1903, an order under the Board of Education Act, 1899, was sealed determining in accordance with the existing trusts the part of the endowment of the charity which is held for educational purposes. No notice of the proposal to make such an order is required by the Act to be given to persons interested, but the Commissioners, in accordance with their practice in such cases, sent a draft of the order to the trustees of the charity, and a draft was also sent to the parish council of Wilby at the request of the council.
