HC Deb 27 April 1920 vol 128 c1032
67. Viscount CURZON

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider the advisability of publishing a complete balance sheet of the Prize Court Fund, showing the receipts and expenditure in detail under all heads?


Details of the Supreme Court Prize Deposit Account are published annually (see Return 48 of 1920). When the proceeds have been finally allocated between the Exchequer and the Naval Prize Fund I will consider, in conjunction with my right hon. Friend the First Lord of the Admiralty, the publication of complete balance sheets under each head.


Is it not a fact that, whilst men who have earned prize money are still waiting for it, the lawyers have already drawn over £6,000,000?
