HC Deb 24 April 1907 vol 173 c44

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Endowed Schools Commissioners and the Commissioners of Charitable Donations and Bequests for Ireland are the same persons; are all permanent charities and endowments in Ireland now under the control of these bodies; by whom are inspectors appointed over the various properties and institutions; on whose recommendation; what are the qualifications for these inspectorships; how are the inspectors paid, and paid by whom; how is performance of duty vouched; and will he grant, if moved for, a Return of all the charities and endowed institutions now under the control of these two bodies of Commissioners showing the date of foundation or acquisition, name of founder, nature of property, original and present value, annual yield, annual expenditure, and how applied.


The Answer to this Question is necessarily of considerable length, and it would be more convenient to circulate it with the Votes. With the hon. Member's permission, I will adopt that course.
