HC Deb 24 May 1909 vol 5 cc820-1

asked the hon. Member for the Barnstaple Division, as representing the Charity Commissioners, whether he is aware what are the rights claimed by the lord of the manor over the land known as the Poor's Furze, in East-bury, in Berkshire; and whether the Charity Commissioners have taken any steps to secure to the parishioners of East-bury the full enjoyment of the fuel allotment, or other benefits, originally awarded to them on that land?


The Commissioners are endeavouring to ascertain exactly what rights the lord of the manor claims, and meanwhile are preparing a scheme for securing to the parishioners the enjoyment of the benefit intended for them by the allotment. The scheme will be published in due course.
