HC Deb 26 June 1907 vol 176 c1390
MR. MICKLEM (Hertfordshire, Watford)

I beg to ask Mr. Attorney-General whether any steps are being taken to constitute the office of Public Trustee under the Public Trustee Act of 1906.


This is a matter which comes within the province of the Lord Chancellor, with whom I have communicated, and who has authorised me to make this reply. It is considered necessary to have a public trustee in being three months before the Act comes into operation, so that the necessary office arrangements may be made. With this in view communications have passed with Mr. C..J. Stewart, some time Official Receiver in the Companies (Winding Up) Department of the Board of Trade, and afterwards clerk to the County Council. It is intended to appoint him in October next, and meanwhile he is acting with a committee to advise in the constitution of the office and staff' under the Act of 1906.
