§ Mr. Granville
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the number of occasions on which the Tithe Redemption Commission formally threatened to take bankruptcy proceedings for the recovery of the annuity and the arrears of tithe rentcharge, actually commenced such proceedings and carried such proceedings through to actual bankruptcy, respectively.
§ Mr. Assheton
During the seven years since the Tithe Redemption Commission began to collect annuities and arrears of tithe rentcharge, a bankruptcy notice has been issued in 32 cases. It has been unnecessary to present a petition in bankruptcy in more than nine of these cases or to proceed to adjudication in more than four.
