51. Captain FABER
asked whether it is obligatory for every member of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners to belong to the Church of England?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The Act requires that every Commissioner, before acting under the Commission, shall make a declaration that he is a member of the Church of England.
§ Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
Is it sufficient to have a declaration by a gentleman who has habitually taken advantage of the Toleration Act and says in this House that he is not a member of the Church?
