§ Mr. Sutcliffe
asked the hon. Member for Swansea West, as representing the Charity Commissioners, whether the Commissioners will evolve a scheme for the utilisation of all unused balances of relief funds, so that these could be pooled and made available when necessary?
§ Mr. Lewis Jones
Without legislative authority it is doubtful whether the Charity Commissioners would have power to establish a scheme which would pool the unused balances of all relief funds. As there are differences of opinion on the question whether such a scheme is desirable, it appears that in view of the provisions of Section 5 of the Charitable Trusts Act, 1860, any such scheme should be established by the court.
