HC Deb 15 July 1862 vol 168 c348

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether the Notice giving the public full information as to the intentions of the Lords of the Treasury in regard to Treasure Trove, and which, as was stated in a Circular addressed to the Chief Constable of the County of Hants, dated Whitehall, January 9, 1861, would probably be shortly issued, will be issued; and if so, when?


said, the draft of the amended notice relating to treasure trove, what it was, and what the finders should do, was prepared in the beginning of last year, and was sent to the office of the Treasury. A question then arose as to the propriety of issuing such a notice at all, and the subject dropped. He would, however, communicate with the Solicitor to the Treasury, in order to ascertain whether it would be desirable to issue it or not.
