HC Deb 05 March 1934 vol 286 c1537

Motion made, and Question proposed, That a Supplementary sum, not exceeding £600, be granted to His Majesty, to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1934, for the Salaries and Expenses of the Charity Commission for England and Wales.


In the original Estimate for 1933 it was estimated, on the basis of the figures then available, that the fees for the recording of Deeds under the Settled Land Act, 1925, would produce £3,400. It is now expected that they will not exceed £2,800 and it is, accordingly, necessary to ask for this Supplementary Estimate. The same observations that I made on the previous Estimate apply here and I trust the Committee will think that a sufficient explanation.

Question put, and agreed to.
