Tithe Bill


Tithe Bill

The Tithe Bill was passed by the Whig government, under Lord Melbourne in the latter half of the 1830s. It was passed because the Whig government had an obligation to Daniel O'Connell as stipulated under the Lichfield House Compact. Due to this agreement O'Connell managed to pass reforms for Ireland and the Tithe Bill was one of these measures.

The Act abolished the payment of the tithe to the Anglican Church of Ireland. The controversy was that the Catholics and nonconformists had to pay the tithe to a church that didn't represent them. Under this new law this payment was abolished for Catholics and Presbyterians living in Ulster.
