§ Mr. Simon Hughes
To ask the right hon. Member for Selby, as representing the Church Commissioners, what is the net income over expenditure or expenditure over income contributed to the funds of the Church by the diocese of Southwark for the last year for which records are available.
§ Mr. Alison
The total cost of ministers' stipends in the diocese of Southwark in 1991–92 is expected to be nearly £6 million, 46 per cent. of which is likely to be met through giving by Church people in the diocese, 40 per cent. by Church Commissioners' allocations and 14 per cent. from fees and other local income.
