HC Deb 02 December 1952 vol 508 cc132-3W
68. Mr. P. Wells

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what sum was collected in the form of tithe redemption annuities from tenants, or owners of agricultural land during the year ended 1951.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The total sum collected during the year was about £2½ million. Of this amount about 95 per cent. is estimated to have been paid by owners of agricultural land; the annuities are not payable by tenants.
