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