HC Deb 22 May 1911 vol 26 cc92-3W

asked what is the capital value of the trust estates in the hands of the Public Trustee to which investment fees have been charged within the period of fifteen months ended 31st March, 1911, under Section 2 of the Schedule to The Public Trustee (Fees) Order, 1907; what is the total amount of the capital fees paid or payable on acceptance and on distribution in respect of such estates; what income fees have been charged to such estates for the said period; what investment fees have been charged to such estates for the same period, distinguishing the fees charged under paragraphs (1) and (2) of the said section, respectively; and what sums have been paid by the Public Trustee for brokerage under paragraph (1)?


The work involved in compiling the information asked for would be exceedingly onerous, and the results would, I think, be illusory, seeing that the amount invested by the Department in any particular trust during a particular period has no bearing at all on the capital value of the trust. The Third Annual Report of the Public Trustee's Department sets out the fees received under the respective heads of the Fees Order. The Fees Order now in force is dated 1909, and this Order rescinded the previous Fees Order of 1907.
