§ 38. Mr. Corbyn
To ask the hon. Member for Middlesbrough, representing the Church Commissioners, if he will assess the financial consequences of disestablishment of the Church of England. 22W
§ Mr. Stuart Bell
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave him on 25 January 1999,Official Report, column 17.
Disestablishment would not lie with the Commissioners to initiate and, without formal instructions and definitions, any estimates of costs are impractical.
