HC Deb 01 December 1978 vol 959 c384W
Mr. Farr

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list all increases made since 1968 in those charges referred to in section 5 and the schedule to the Public Expenditure and Receipts Act 1968.

Mr. Merlyn Rees:

I am concerned only with the fee for the issue of a licence under section 25 of the Burial Act 1857—which is covered by the Fees (Increase) Act 1923. Increases in this fee were made on 1st May 1976, from £2 to £4, and on 1st April 1978, from £4 to £5.
