(2)All money standing to the said account and not required for the purposes thereof shall be paid into the account of Her Majesty’s Exchequer; and

Provided, that if any person satisfies the Treasury of his right under the said grant to the whole or any part of such unclaimed money, securities, or property, the Treasury may direct the sum paid to the Crown’s Nominee Account in respect of the same or of the part to which such person shows himself to be entitled, to be paid to such person out of the Consolidated Fund, . . .
