HL Deb 13 July 1868 vol 193 c1101

House in Committee (according to Order).

LORD LYTTELTON moved an Amendment relating to the remuneration of the coadjutor Bishop of Kingston in Jamaica.


said, the Bill had been prepared with the intention of saving all vested rights; but it could not on that footing have met the particular case to which the noble Lord's Amendment referred. All the work of the Bishop of Jamaica had been done by the coadjutor Bishop of Kingston, who received a certain portion of the funds applicable to the bishopric of Jamaica. It seemed equitable that while he discharged the duties the coadjutor Bishop should receive 6ome remuneration; and, therefore, he could not think of opposing the Amendment. The last two lines of the Amendment, however, went rather too far. The noble Duke moved a proviso that while the coadjutor Bishop was in the receipt of his salary no payment should be made from the Consolidated Fund in respect to his archdeaconry.

After a few words from Lord CRANWORTH,

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendments made: The Report thereof to be received on Thursday next; and Bill to be printed as amended. (No. 249.)
