HC Deb 19 June 1911 vol 27 c42

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if clergymen in Ireland are deprived of the relief granted by Subsection 7 (b) of Section 19 of the Finance Act, 1907, because surveyors of taxes hold that the occupancy of a manse or rectory is not part of the emoluments of office; and if he will direct that fresh instructions shall be issued to surveyors of taxes, so as to ensure that clergymen shall get the relief intended by the Finance Act, 1907?


I am not aware that the relief granted by the Sub-section referred to has been refused to any individual who is entitled thereto; but if the hon. Member will furnish me with particulars of a specific case I will cause inquiry to be made.
