the Reign of His late Majesty King George the Third, 57 G. 3. c.64. • intituled An Act to abolish certain Offices, and regulate others in

Scotland, it was among other Things enacted, that from and after • and upon the Termination of the then existing Interests in the • Offices of Keeper of the Signet and Lord Register in Scotland • respectively, in the Manner therein mentioned, the Fees paid • and payable to the Lord Register for Scotland, or in respect of • the Duties then discharged by any Person or Persons in the • Office of the said Lord Register, should continue to be paid • and payable in the same Manner as such Fees respectively

were then paid and payable ; and such Fees should be applied, ' in the first Place, in satisfying and paying such Salaries or Al• lowances as the Lord High Treasurer or Commissioners of His • Majesty's Treasury, or any Three or more of them, should think • fit to grant and direct to be paid to any Person or Persons whom • they might think necessary for the due Discharge of the Business • appertaining to the Office of Lord Register; and in the next • Place, in Payment of the Salary of One thousand two hundred • Pounds per Annum, thereby granted to the Person holding the • said Office of Lord Register ; and any Balance of such Fees · which should remain after such Payment, should be made to the • Receiver General of Scotland, at least once in Three Months, • or as the Lord High Treasurer or Commissioners of the Trea

sury, or any Three or more of them, shall direct, and should be • paid and accounted for by him with the other Public Monies re• ceived by him: And Whereas the Interest which existed in the • said Office of Lord Register in Scotland, at the Date of the

• above recited Act, terminated by the Death of the Right • Honourable Archibald Colquhoun, which happened on the Eighth • Day of December One thousand eight hundred and twenty ; and • the said Office of the Lord Register is now held, and the Duties • thereof are now discharged, by the Person who was then and • still continues Keeper of the Signet for Scotland, in the Manner • directed by the above recited Act: And Whereas by an Act • passed in the Third Year of the Reign of His present Majesty,

for keeping the Public Records of Scotland therein, proceeding on a Recital, that the Building called The • General Register House, which had been erected for the Pur• pose of being a Repository of the Public Muniments and Re

cords of Scotland, remained to be completed according to the

original Design and Plan thereof, and the Accommodation • afforded by so much of the Building as had been erected had • become insufficient for the Purposes of such Repository, and • it being necessary that additional Accommodation should be • afforded, it was reasonable that the Balance of Fees remaining,

after satisfying and paying the Salaries or Allowances granted . or that might be granted for the due Discharge of the Business * appertaining to the said Office of Lord Register, and also of • the Office of the Keeper of the Signet, when the same should

come to be, as the said Office of Lord Register had been, regu• lated pursuant to the said recited Act of the Fifty seventh Year • of His late Majesty's Reign, should be applied for this pur

pose ; it was therefore enacted, that the Balance of all such Fees • that had already arisen, and the Balance of all such Fees that • should hereafter arise, which are directed by the said recited • Act to be paid to the Receiver General of Scotland, should be * paid to the

Keeper of the Great Seal of Scotland, the Keeper of • the Privy Seal, the Lord Justice General of Scotland, the Lord · President of the Court of Session in Scotland, the Lord Register • of Scotland, the Lord Advocate of Scotland, the Justice Clerk, • the Lord Chief Baron of the Court of Exchequer in Scotland, • and the Lord Chief Commissioner of the Jury Court, all for the · Time being, until Sums should have been received by them, or • any Three or more of them, to the Amount of Thirty thousand • Pounds; and it was further enacted, that all Sums so received • by virtue of that Act should be laid out and applied by the • aforesaid Persons herein named, or any Three or more of them, • in completing and fitting up the Buildings intended for a ' general Repository of the Public Records of Scotland, according

to the original Plan or Design thereof, Part of which only had • been finished, or according to such other Plan or Design as • should appear to the aforesaid Persons above named, or any · Three or more of them, best adapted, in the present State of • the Public Records of Scotland, for the purposes of such • Repository; and it was also further enacted, that Once at • least in Three Years from and after the passing of that Act • the aforesaid named Persons, or some Three or more of them, • should make a Report to each House of Parliament, stating the • Sums from time to time received by them pursuant to this Act,

6

the Application thereof, the Progress made in completing the • said Building, and any Matter arising out of the same which

may appear proper to them to be reported to Parliament: • And Whereas by the Reports made by the aforesaid Commis• sioners to the Two Houses of Parliament in pursuance of the • aforesaid Act, it appears that in carrying into Execution the

Purposes of the above recited Act, they had found it expedient • to alter and in some respects to enlarge the original Plan or

Design of the Buildings of His Majesty's General Register • House, and also to alter and improve certain Parts of the * Buildings formerly erected, and the interior Arrangements of

many of the Apartments therein contained, in consequence of • which a larger Expence must unavoidably be incurred than • had been provided for by the aforesaid Act; and that for defray. ing the Expence, it will be proper to provide, by a further Ap

propriation of the Fees that shall remain after satisfying and • paying the Salaries or Allowances granted or that may be • granted for the due Discharge of the Business appertaining to

the Office of Lord Register, and also of the Office of Keeper of • the Signet, when the same shall come to be regulated pursuant

to the aforesaid Act of the Fifty seventh Year of the Reign of . His late Majesty;' Be it therefore enacted by the King's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the Advice and Consent of the

Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Balance of Fees Parliament assembled, and by the Authority of the same, That payable in the the Balance of all such Fees as have already arisen or shall hereOffice of Lord after arise, which are directed by the said first recited Act to be paid to certain paid to the Receiver General of Scotland, shall be paid to the Persons till it Keeper of the Great Seal of Scotland, the Keeper of the Privy shall amount to Seal of Scotland, the Lord Justice General of Scotland, the Lord the Sum of President of the Court of Session in Scotland, the Lord Register 20,0001.
