294.     Expenses of examination.

Where a public examination of the bankrupt has been ordered by the court on a creditors' requisition1, the court may order that some or all of the expenses of the examination are to be paid out of the deposit paid by the requisitionists2, instead of out of the bankrupt's estate3. The costs and expenses of a public examination do not fall on the official receiver personally4.
