7.1. The Government may fix a tariff of fees and duties payable for deposits, payments or reimbursements made under this Act or any other Act. The tariff may prescribe fees and duties that vary according to whether they are payable for the deposit of a sum of money, a security or a suretyship and determine the persons, departments and bodies that are exempted from payment of the fees and duties. The Government may also establish the conditions and terms governing payment of the fees and duties.
The Government may, in addition, fix the rate of interest payable on deposits, to the extent and subject to the conditions it determines. The interest shall be paid out of the Consolidated Revenue Fund.
