Summary

The Treasury began to emerge as a distinct department in the sixteenth century and by 1660 had its own office in Whitehall and a permanent staff distinct from that of the Exchequer. The Board of the Treasury was established in 1635 and the Lords Commissioners met as a board to discuss matters of detail until the middle of the nineteenth century. It then took shape as a ministerial department, headed by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, while maintaining a special relationship with the Prime Minister as First Lord of the Treasury. It has always been responsible for overseas finance, government expenditure, economic coordination and the management of the Civil Service.
