HC Deb 23 April 1913 vol 52 c381W

asked the Attorney-General how many applications have been received by the Public Trustee to act as trustee of trusts which fall or would fall to be administered under the Law of Scotland during each year since the passing of the Public Trustee Act, 1906, and in the aggregate?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave him to a similar question on the 6th August last, in which it is stated that no statistics are kept of the Scotch trusts submitted for acceptance of the Public Trustee, but that the number at that date was estimated at not less than 500. I am informed that since then the tendency is for such applications to increase rather than decrease.
