Steve Elibank made this Freedom of Information request to Her Majesty's Treasury

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Her Majesty’s Treasury,

According to House of Commons fact-sheet P11, whenever the Chancellor of the Exchequer appoints somebody to the offices of Bailiff of the Chiltern Hundreds or the Manor of Northstead, a warrant is signed and stored in the Treasury.

Please provide me with an electronic copy of all such warrants issued from the 1997-2001 Parliament until the present day. If this would exceed the cost limit, please omit the 1997-2001 and 2001-2005 Parliaments.

Yours faithfully,
Steve Elibank
