§ MR. HANBURY (Preston)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, What is the total annual cost of the Office of the Receiver of Hereditary Revenue; whether he performs any other duty than that of such Receiver; and, what has been the annual amount received by him during the last five years in respect of such Hereditary Revenue only?
§ THE SECRETARY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
The total annual cost of the Office is £445 (£300 salary of Receiver, and £145 Office expenses). He also collects some fines which are not part of the Hereditary Revenue—such as fines under the Merchant Shipping Act and the Explosives Act. The amount received by him during the last five years in respect of Hereditary Revenue only has been £7,821, averaging £1,504 per annum. His other civil receipts have amounted in the five years to £12,322.
