HC Deb 22 May 1884 vol 288 c990

asked the President of the Board of Trade, Whether his estimate of one million sterling, as the amount of the aggregate balance likely to remain in the hands of the Board of Trade when the sums formerly held by trustees in bankruptcy were paid in to them has been realised; and, if not, what the aggregate balance now is?


The aggregate balance now in the hands of the Board of Trade from this source is £382,489. The money is coming in at the rate of from £10,000 to £15,000 a-week, and the Board of Trade has no reason to doubt that ultimately the amount originally estimated will be realized.
