HC Deb 09 March 1925 vol 181 c952W

asked the Minister of Health of he has received any complaints from parish councils in Wales of undue delay in transferring church cemeteries to the jurisdiction of the parish councils in accordance with the Welsh Disestablishment Act of 1914; and whether he will see that the Commissioners of the Welsh Church Temporalities carry out without further delay the transfer already applied for?


The Commissioners inform me that they have received communications from a, very small number of local authorities pressing for the transfer of burial grounds or portions of burial grounds transferable to them under the Welsh Church Act, 1914. As to the second part of the question, I have nothing to add to my reply to the hon. Member for Denbigh (Mr. Ellis Davies) on the 5th instant.
