HC Deb 17 November 1992 vol 214 c113W
Mr. Luff

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has to amend the Crown Estates Act 1961 to enable the Crown Estate Commissioners to make significant charitable donations to organisatons operating within communities where the Commissioners own property; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lamont

Section 4(2) of the Crown Estate Act 1961 allows the Commissioners to make financial contributions out of the income of the Crown Estate for any religious or educational purpose connected with land of the Crown Estate, or for other purposes tending to the welfare of persons residing or employed on any such land. I have no plans to extend this to the wider local community.
