HC Deb 18 January 1982 vol 16 c30W
Mr. Field

asked the hon. Member for Wokingham, as representing the Church Commissioners, what will be the stipend for rectors and vicars and assistant curates from 1 April 1982.

Sir William van Straubenzee

From 1 April 1982 the Central Stipends Authority for the Church of England has recommended a national minimum stipend range for rectors and vicars of £5, 500 and £6, 000 per annum and for curates a six-year scale from £4, 500 to £5, 100 per annum.

Subject to these recommendations, the actual level of augmentation of a clergyman's stipend is determined by the bishop of his diocese with the concurrence of his diocesan board of finance.

I am sending to the hon. Member a copy of the Central Stipends Authority's 1981 report upon these and related matters.

Forward to
