HC Deb 16 November 1931 vol 259 cc513-4W
Brigadier-General BROWN

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, having regard to the state of agricultural depression on arable land, he will consider the extension of the remission of tithe under the Tithe Act, 1891, where the amount payable exceeds two-thirds of the assessment to Income Tax, Schedule B?


An extension of the remission provisions of Section 8 of the Tithe Act, 1891, would involve legislation. I can hold out no hope of the introduction of any legislation on the subject of tithe.
