HC Deb 15 November 1938 vol 341 cc715-6W
Mr. Parker

asked the Attorney-General whether he is aware that when the Public Trustee took over the Moody Will Trust, P/541, he accepted and passed incorrect figures; that, in July, 1937, the residuary legatee was kept waiting for the yearly account and payment without notification; that again in 1938 the yearly account was incompletely presented; and whether he will have special enquiry made into the matter with a view to preventing such mistakes in future?

The Attorney-General

My Noble Friend, the Lord Chancellor, has made investigation into the matter to which the hon. Member refers, and, as a result, he cannot accept the allegations which have been made. He is, on the contrary, satisfied that the Public Trustee has carried out his duties relating to this Trust with due care and propriety.
