HC Deb 07 February 1933 vol 274 cc16-7
11. Sir A. POWNALL

asked the hon. Member for Central Leeds, as representing the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, if he can now state the total cost falling on the Commissioners in respect of the recent case in the Norwich Consistory Court?

Mr. DENMAN (Second Church Estates Commissioner)

The total cost has been £8,205 1s. 2d.


Can my hon. Friend say whether any steps are in contemplation to reduce the cost and the publicity, should cases of this sort unfortunately arise in future?


As my hon. Friend knows, the Commissioners are helpless in this matter. The question, I understand, is on the agenda of the Assembly now in session, and it will be for them to deal with it.
