HC Deb 17 December 1919 vol 123 c623

In respect of any church left staining within the united parish and not being the parish church, the scheme may provide that the same, except the chancel, may, with the consent of the bishop of the diocese within which the united parish is situate, be used for any ecclesiastical, educational, or charitable purpose in connection with the Church of England.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill."


I think this Clause should be omitted. It was only inserted as an after-thought, and there is a general feeling among the people that the Church should not be used for this purpose.

Question put, and negatived.

Clauses 10, 11 and 12 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
