HC Deb 27 April 1915 vol 71 c600W

asked the hon. Member for the Doncaster Division, as representing the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, if he will state the total net income from Endowments of the Church of England in Wales at 1st January, 1913, and at 1st January, 1915; the portion of such income at each of these dates derived from tithe rent-charge; and the commuted amount of the tithe rent-charge arising from Endowments believed to have existed prior to 1662 in the dioceses of Bangor, Llandaff, St. Asaph, and St. Davids.


The information required to answer the first and second parts of this question is not in the possession of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, and I do not know of the existence of any more recent Return than that given in the Appendix to the Report of the Royal Commission on the Church in Wales, which was based on figures for the year 1906. In reply to the last part of the question I would refer the hon. Member to the written answer given by me on the 20th inst. to a question of the hon. Member for the Northern Division of Somerset.
