HC Deb 22 February 1872 vol 209 c871

asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether any written communications had passed between the Lord Chancellor, the Treasury, the Exchequer and Audit Department, the Accountant General in Chancery, the National Debt Commissioners, and the Bank of England, or any of them, upon the subject matter of "The Court of Chancery Funds Bill;" and, if so, whether he would have any objection to lay such communications upon the Table of the House?


The Chancery Funds Bill is pretty nearly the same as the measure of last year, in the framing of which we had communications with the Lord Chancellor, the Accountant General in Chancery, and the National Debt Commissioners. There were, however, no official communications, and I am not aware that there were any written ones. There has been no communication with the Bank of England. We sent the Exchequer and Audit Department a copy of last year's Bill, and yesterday received a communication from them, which I shall have no objection to produce.
