Record NG6/6/672

Archive reference number NG6/6/672

Letter to The Secretary H. M. Treasury

Date 6 Jul 1880

Reply to letter 1137, of 2 Jul. Informing the Lords Commissioners of H.M.

Treasury that the appointment of the committee referred to will invoice no

expense to this Department beyond the fees which may be paid to experts for

their opinions or attendance and the charges of a short-hand writer to take

notes. It may be possible that these may be met out of the sum provided in the

Parliamentary Grant, but if the committee decides the ‘Raising of Lazarus’ does

need cleaning the expense might cause an excess, therefore the Trustees and

Director will communicate again before incurring such expense.
