§ 80. Mr. TIMOTHY DAVIES
asked the right hon. Member for the Stroud Division as representing the Charity Commissioners, whether the thirty acres of land known as poor's land, in the parish of Gayton-le-Marsh, Lincolnshire, given to the poor of the parish under an award by the Commissioners of Inclosure, dated the 6th of May, 1706, is being misappropriated; and will he cause full inquiry to be made into the matter and see that the trustees carry out the provisions of the trust faithfully?
§ Mr. CHARLES ALLEN
The charity does not appear to be misappropriated. A complaint was made to the Charity Commissioners about the charity in May last, and on inquiry by the Commissioners an explanation which was generally satisfactory was given. It appeared, however, that the accounts of the charity had not been rendered by the trustees to the parish meeting.The trustees have been informed that this should be done. The explanation which was received was communicated by the Commisisoners to the complainant, who has made no further comment.
§ Mr. T. DAVIES
Is my right hon. Friend aware that tiles purchased to drain this land were taken by the Chief Trustee and used for his own private property?
