§ 51. Mr. SORENSEN
asked the Prime Minister how many livings of the Church of England are under the control or at the disposal of members of the Government acting in an official capacity?
§ Mr. SORENSEN
Does the right hon. Gentleman consult with the ecclesiastical authorities before he appoints individuals to these livings?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I cannot speak for everyone who has the dispensation of this patronage, but, so far as I am concerned, I do my best to acquaint myself with all the circumstances requisite to enable me to come to a decision.
