HC Deb 14 June 1880 vol 252 cc1900-1

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, If he can inform the House when the Lists of Moneys paid into the Court of Chancery, the publication of which is provided for by statute, and which should have been published last February, will be published; and, whether he will, if necessary, afford the Chancery Paymaster extra assistance to expedite the publication?


I am informed that the delay in the publication of the list of moneys has been caused by the great pressure of work in the office of the Chancery Paymaster, and by the very large number of accounts which it is necessary to investigate before the list can be prepared. By affording the Chancery Paymaster some additional assistance which he has suggested, I hope lists will be published before very long.
