HC Deb 28 July 1914 vol 65 c1138W

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the Bishop of Norwich paid £350 in fees and other charges on his consecration; and will he say whether any of these fees were payable to the Home Office, the College of Arms, or to the House of Lords?


I am informed by the Legal Secretary to the Archbishop of Canterbury that the fees and charges paid by the Bishop of Norwich in connection with his appointment and consecration amounted to £365 13s. 10d. Of this sum £37 10s. 6d., including 10s. Stamp Duty, was paid to the Home Office, and £185 6s. 6d., including £91 16s. 0d. Stamp Duty, to the Crown Office. These sums were paid into the Exchequer. No fees were payable to the College of Arms.
