HC Deb 03 April 1876 vol 228 cc1096-7

asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether in the arrangement which he proposes making, in conjunction with the President of the Local Government Board and the Registrar General, for the establishment of a low and uniform charge for the certificates of deaths of members of Friendly Societies, he will include in the same arrangement the charge for certificates of deaths of members of Building Societies under Clause 29 of the Building Society Act of 1874?


, in reply, said, that he thought the hon. Gentleman was labouring under a misapprehension. The arrangement with regard to the fees paid on certificates of the death of members of friendly societies was fixed by the Act of last Session. The only arrangement he was now endeavouring to make was with regard to the construction which was to be put upon the words of that statute. It would not be possible for him or any one else, without a new Act of Parliament, to deal with the case of the members of building societies, as suggested.
