HC Deb 30 April 1931 vol 251 c1837W

asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider remitting the customary exhumation fee of two guineas in cases where the relatives of persons who have been inadvertently buried in the wrong graves are unable to afford such fee in addition to the re-burial charges?


This is a statutory fee imposed by Section 7 of the Fees (Increase) Act, 1923, and my right hon. Friend has no Authority to remit it in such cases.
