HC Deb 27 May 1907 vol 174 c1302

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will call the attention of the Irish Land Commission (Church Property Department) to the desirability of snowing in future reports how the surplus income of the Irish Church Temporalities Fund is applied in detail and not merely saying it is applied in payment of debts.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) If the hon. and learned Member will refer to the Report of the Church Temporalities Commissioners, 1869–80 [C. 2773 of 1881], the Annual Reports of the Land Commission since 1881, and the Appendices to the latter Reports under the head of "Financial Temporalities of late Established Church," he will find full particulars of the application of the revenues of the late Established Church, as regards both the discharge of the annual charges imposed by Parliament and the application of any available surplus to the payment of capital debts.
