§ MR. F. A. CHANNING (Northampton, E.)
I beg to ask the hon. Member for Thirsk, as a Charity Commissioner (1) whether the attention of the Charity Commissioners has been called to the case of Holy Trinity Church of England School, Gray's Inn Road (which received a building grant of £531 2s. 9d.), which was formally transferred to the School Board for London, and is now mainly let to a trading company; and (2) whether the Charity Commissioners have taken any steps to secure that the rent derived from letting the building is applied to the trusts to which the school premises are subject?
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY CHARITY COMMISSIONER (Mr. J. GRANT LAWSON, York, N.R., Thirsk and Malton)
The Charity Commissioners find, upon inquiry, that the facts are as stated in the first clause of the Question. The rent derived from letting the school building, though wholly applied to public purposes, is not applied in accordance with the exclusively educational trusts to which the building is subject. The Commissioners are taking steps to insure compliance with the trusts in future.
