HC Deb 01 November 1934 vol 293 c358
73. Mr. THORNE

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can state the number of farms, the value of cattle, furniture, farming implements and personal goods that have been distrained for non-payment of tithe; and whether the total value of the goods distrained is equal to the tithes due?


No, Sir. The collection and recovery of tithe rentcharge is not a matter which falls within the jurisdiction of the Ministry.
