HC Deb 11 December 1995 vol 268 c501W
37. Mr. Simon Hughes

To ask the right hon. Member for Selby, representing the Church Commissioners, what income is received annually by the Church Commissioners from non-church building based congregations. [3323]

Mr. Alison

The commissioners do not receive income directly from congregations. They do receive income from dioceses towards clergy stipends, which is then paid out directly to clergy with their monthly stipend payments. This income is mainly derived from parishes, but the commissioners have no information on individual parish contributions to such sums.
