"lodgment fees" ) payable to the Registrar-General for lodgment of any dealing, caveat or withdrawal of caveat,
(b) any amounts recovered by the Registrar-General under or in connection with this Part,
(c) any amounts advanced by the Treasurer for payment into the Fund,
(d) any amounts appropriated by Parliament for payment into the Fund,

(a) any compensation payable under or in connection with this Part,
