HC Deb 07 May 1925 vol 183 c1158W
Colonel DAY

asked the hon. Member for North-East Leeds, as representing the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, what is the estimated total annual value of the tithe rent-charge payable in the administrative counties of East and West Sussex, respectively?


I have been asked to reply. According to a Return as regards individual parishes, furnished to the House of Commons and ordered to be printed on the 4th May, 1848, the total commuted amount of tithe rent-charge in the county of Sussex was as follows:

capita contribution of 9d. under the Metropolitan Common Poor Fund Regulations should be increased to ls.; and, if so, whether he proposes to accede to the request?


I have received representations to this effect from five Boards of Guardians out of 28 on the subject. I do not at present propose to introduce legislation for the amendment of the Local Authorities (Emergency Provisions) Act, 1924.
