To His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, K.G.

SIR,

The Executive Committee of the National Relief Fund have the honour to submit a final statement of the accounts of the Fund, duly certified by their Honorary Auditor, Sir Laurence Halsey. This statement covers the period from the inception of the Fund to the 16th April, 1923.

It will be recalled that in their final Report on the administration of the Fund (Cmd. 1272, 1921) the Committee intimated that the final accounts of the Fund could not be issued until the completion of the audit of the accounts of the Local Relief Committees and Local Representative Committees to which grants had been made for the relief of civil distress. The Committee regret that owing to the difficulty experienced in obtaining duly certified statements of account from some of the Local Committees it has not been possible to issue the final statement of the accounts of the Fund at an earlier date.

In the Committee's final Report on the administration of the Fund it was explained that the Fund had been finally apportioned. No further applications for grants have been entertained, and the list of payments summarised on page 7 represents grants which had been sanctioned previously, but were actually paid after the issue of the final Report.

In this connection it may be recalled that in the latter part of paragraph 31 of the final Report it was pointed out that some further sums might be received-mainly in respect of certain outstanding local balances—and that the Committee had decided that any sum remaining after all commitments had been met should be divided between the Central Committee on Women's Training and Employment, the Officers' Association and the Unity Relief Fund. One half of the residue was assigned to the Central Committee on Women's Training and Employment, the other half to be divided equally between the Officers' Association and the Unity Relief Fund. In the result the Central Committee has received the sum of £22,429 5s. 11d., the Officers' Association £11,214 12s. 11d., and the Unity Relief Fund £11,214 13s. Od.

On behalf of the Executive Committee,
We have the honour to be, Sir,
Your Royal Highness's most
obedient humble Servants,

G. H. MURRAY,

Chairman.

L. G. BROCK,

Secretary
