  2. (2) respecting the safety of the trust property, and the custody thereof:
  3. (3) respecting the remuneration of judicial trustees and for fixing and regulating the fees to be taken under this Act so as to cover the expenses of the administration of this Act, and respecting the payment of such remuneration and fees out of the trust property:
  4. (4) for dispensing with formal proof of facts in proper cases:
  5. (5) for facilitating the discharge by the court of administrative duties under this Act without judicial proceedings, and otherwise regulating procedure under this Act and making it simple and inexpensive:
  6. (6) for assigning jurisdiction under this Act to county court judges and defining such jurisdiction:
  7. (7) respecting the suspension or removal of any judicial trustee, and the succession of another person to the office of any judicial trustee who may cease to hold office, and the vesting in such person of any trust property or executorship:
  8. (8) respecting the classes of trusts in which officials of the court are not to be judicial trustees, or are to be so temporarily or conditionally:
  9. (9) respecting the grant of probate or letters of administration to judicial trustees:
  10. (10) for preventing the employment by judicial trustees of other persons at the expense of the trust, except in cases of strict necessity:
  11. (11) for the filing of accounts by judicial trustees.

(2.) The rules under this Act may be made by the authority having for the time being power to make rules regulating the practice and procedure of the Supreme Court of Judicature, and shall be laid before Parliament and have the same force as if enacted in this Act, provided that if within thirty days after such rules have been laid before either House of Parliament, during which that House has sat, the House presents to Her Majesty an address against such rules or any of them, such rules or the rule specified in the address shall thenceforward be of no effect.

SIR HENRY FOWLER moved in Sub-section (1)—(11) to leave out the words "of accounts by judicial trustees," and to insert instead thereof the words— And auditing of the accounts of any trust of which a judicial trustee has been appointed and for the immediate payment into court of the amount of any payment which shall be found to have been improperly made by such judicial trustee.

Amendment agreed to.
