Census Search Forms: Place in Record Treasury

Would anyone know what 'Place in Record Treasury ' mean in the Census Search Forms?

Some records show L 16 / 14 a as an entry beside 'Place in Record Treasury'.

Does this mean people were awarded a pension?

Underneath 'Place in Record Treasury' is 'Researched search by' or 'Particulars Found' and the handwriting say's 'Not Found'. Would this mean they were not awarded a pension???

I'd imagine the Record Treasury refers to the room in which the census forms were stored.

Would I be right in saying that these records don't tell us if a pension was issued?

Sometimes I think that perhaps the L sign is a £ sign??

Yes, L does mean £. Can you link to one of the forms please?

In that example, the person was not found on the 1841/51 census. This doesn't necessarily mean they did not get an OAP, but just that they may have had to provide some other proof of age.
