Queen Anne's Bounty, also a corporation created by Parliament, is responsible for collecting tithe, which is the tax of one-tenth originally imposed by the State in Saxon times for the upkeep of the church. Revenue of a little over two millions is distributed to the church annually by Queen Anne's Bounty which, under recent legislation, collects from the tithe-payer an additional annual sum for redemption purposes. Beyond this the interest and dividends payable to the clergy from securities held by Queen Anne's Bounty had risen between 1920 and 1932 from 260,500 to £460,000.(2)
The total annual income of the church is very difficult to estimate, because there is a multitude of separate owners and authorities. In 1877 the settled interest of the establishment was reckoned as about six millions,(3) not including the one million spent annually in the building and repairing of churches. One would expect that, with the increase in values since then, this income would at least not be less. In 1930 another estimate gives the total gross income of benefices as six and a half millions,(4) and adds the total of voluntary contributions to make a grand total of 13,356,349 pounds. A further £119,000 was paid to army, navy, and air-force chaplains in the same year.(5) As the Bishop of Durham reckons that there are only 2,1/2 million communicants in the
