HC Deb 28 April 1913 vol 52 cc777-8

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture what was the amount received by the Crown during the last financial year from the payments for admission to the ruins of Tintern Abbey, and what was the expenditure upon their maintenance, repair, and custody during the same period?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Runciman)

The accounts for the last financial year are not yet adjusted. For 1911–12, £452 15s. 6d. was paid for admission. It is impossible to give the exact figures for maintenance, as many services are rendered to Tintern Abbey by persons whose duties extend to other properties as well. The sum spent on repairs was £391 8s. 11d., and on custody £40.
