§ Mr. Stainton
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the position of the Inland Revenue commissioners following the judgment in Inland Revenue v Helen Slater Charitable Trust Ltd., in view of the uncertainties confronting grant-making charities in the light of the letter from Lord Cockfield to the hon.

[pursuant to his reply, 18 January 1982]: I have nothing to add at this stage to what my noble Friend Lord Cockfield said in his letter to my hon. Friend on 9 November.
