HC Deb 08 September 1909 vol 10 cc1295-6

asked the hon. Member for the Barnstaple Division, as representing the Charity Commissioners, if he will state the total income derived by charities under the control of the Commissioners from royalties and wayleaves during the year 1908; the maximum charge per ton and per acre levied for wayleaves during the year 1908; and the maximum royalty per ton and per acre levied on coal during the same period?


The Charity Commissioners have not found it practicable with the limited staff at their command to require from the trustees of every charity within their jurisdiction particulars as to the income derived from royalties and wayleaves respectively. They are therefore not in possession of the information asked for by the hon. Member.
