§ 65. Mr. WEST
asked the hon. Member for Central Leeds, as representing the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, which two of the three Church Estates Commissioners in office on 21st February, 1930—the date of the Comptroller and Auditor-General's last published report upon the Commissioners' accounts—were referred to in the Auditor's observation as to pay- 29 ments in addition to maximum authorised salary; why no similar payment was made to the other Commissioner; and whether similar additional payments have been made since the report referred to?
§ Mr. DENMAN (Second Church Estates Commissioner)
The first and third Church Estates Commissioners receive statutory salaries and bonus on Civil Service scale. The second is unpaid. The bonus is still being paid to the two entitled to receive it.
