HC Deb 21 June 1948 vol 452 cc108-9W
65. Mr. Charles Smith

asked the hon. Member for the Forest of Dean, as representing the Charity Commissioners, whether he is aware that the Tiptree, Essex, Parish Council approached his Department as long ago as 1946 to accept the trusteeship of a memorial field and hall in the parish and that the Deed of Gift was recorded in the books of the Commission on 4th June, 1947; and when the Commission will be able to prepare a suitable scheme which will place the memorial project on an adequate legal basis.

Mr. M. Philips Price

The application without which the Commissioners could not proceed was not received by them until 19th January, 1948. The scheme has been drafted and will be forwarded for publication as soon as printed.
