HC Deb 16 December 1908 vol 198 c1867

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that many of the funds under the adjudication of the Scottish Churches Commission have been long ago allotted to the churches interested but have not been paid over, and that much inconvenience is thereby produced to the causes for which the money was given; and whether he will represent to the Commission the advisability of making forthwith a considerable, if not a complete, payment.


I am not quite sure that I understand the full purport of this Question. My hon. friend is aware that I have no power to interfere, and that the Commissioners are in all probability well acquainted with the circumstances. Such matters are left to their discretion and I am not at present disposed to make any such representation to the Commission as my hon. friend suggests.
