§ Mr. EDGAR JONES
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether it is proposed to appoint deputies to the Official Trustee; and, if so, whether one will be appointed for Wales?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
I take it that my hon. Friend is referring to the Public Trustee. Under the provisions of Section 8 (4) of the Pubic Trustee Act, the Lord Chancellor, with the concurrence of the Treasury, may direct the opening of offices, by the Public Trustee in other places besides London. The Treasury have received no recommendation from the Lord Chancellor on the subject.
