In modern times, the Lords Commissioners of the Treasury are the Prime Minister (who is also the First Lord of the Treasury), the Chancellor of the Exchequer and some government whips. Although there is a small overlap, this list should not be confused with a list of ministers in HM Treasury.
In addition, for earlier officials, see List of Lord High Treasurers.
Although the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland was created in 1801, it was not until the Consolidated Fund Act 1816 when the separate offices of Lord High Treasurer of Great Britain and Lord High Treasurer of Ireland were united into one office as the Lord High Treasurer of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on 5 January 1817. The office continued in commission and the commissioners of the old office of Lord High Treasurer of Great Britain continued as the commissioners of the new combined office.
