HC Deb 14 August 1857 vol 147 c1652

said, he wished to ask whether it is intended that probate taken out in England shall extend to Ireland, and also whether it is intended that the Scotch confirmation shall be operative in England.


said, that a clause extending English probate to Ireland, and Irish probate to England, would be introduced into the Irish probate Bill. With respect to Scotland the difference in the law was very great, and it was therefore not his intention at present to propose that the Scotch confirmation should be operative in England or Ireland. That must be a matter for future consideration.
