HC Deb 12 February 1934 vol 285 c1562
7. Mr. T. SMITH

asked the Secretary of State for India how the money allocated by the ecclesiastical department of the Government of India during the past five years from Indian revenues for expenditure in England on the Church of India and the Church of Scotland has been allocated between these two bodies and expended by them; and whether he can give particulars of the pensions, and their amounts, granted in England out of these funds?


Ecclesiastical expenditure in England from Indian revenues consists almost entirely of the pensions of retired bishops and chaplains and the overseas pay and leave allowances of those still serving. No money is allocated to the Churches to be expended by them. Separate figures for the Church of India and the Church of Scotland, or for pensions, are not available.
