HC Deb 06 December 1928 vol 223 c1396
55. Sir R. THOMAS

asked the Attorney-General if he is aware that great inconvenience will be caused in North Wales if the St. Asaph district probate registry is closed, and that it serves an increasing population and is doing an increasing business; and will he give careful consideration to the representations of the inhabitants of that part of North Wales?

The SOLICITOR-GENERAL (Sir Boyd Merriman)

The reorganisation of the District Probate Registries throughout England and Wales is being conducted in pursuance of the Judicature Act, 1925. In view of the representations from North Wales to which the hon. Member refers, the President of the Probate Division has recommended to the Lord Chancellor that arrangements should be made whereby personal applications may be received at St. Asaph in an office provided for that purpose, by an officer of the Bangor sub-registry.
