§ 55. Mr. Somerville Hastings
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what percentage of the money paid to the Tithe Redemption Commission is received by local agents for collection.
§ Mr. Hastings
In view of the uniformity and regularity of these payments, could 1167 not most of that 63 per cent. be saved if the money was collected directly by the Tithe Commission?
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
Yes, Sir, but I understand that when the Bill went through Parliament in 1936 an undertaking was given to continue to employ these agents. As they give up, through death or retirement, the collection goes to the central authority.
