HC Deb 08 July 1915 vol 73 c537
23. Mr. CURRIE

asked the Attorney-General for Ireland whether the representatives of a deceased investor in Ireland whose estate includes a holding in Consols or other public stock raised for purposes of the United Kingdom and in no way specially related to England as distinct from Ireland are involved, when completing their title to the estate, in English court dues and English solicitors' bills on the ground that the National Debt is distinctively English estate?


A grant of probate of letters of administration obtained in Ireland requires to be resealed in England in respect of property which can only be dealt with there. The cost of doing this is small. Consols are transferable at the Bank of Ireland, and therefore resealing in England of the Irish grant is not required in respect of Consols so transferable.
