HC Deb 26 October 1943 vol 393 cc45-6W
Mr. W. J. Edwards

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in order to save the time of the applicant and also rail transport, he will abolish the £2,000 rule with regard to the taking out of letters of administration, and allow all persons residing in the London area and who do not desire to deal through solicitors, to have their cases dealt with in the London office?

Sir J. Anderson

The future arrangements with regard to the work of the Principal Probate Registry as a whole are under consideration at the present time, and until certain decisions are taken, I am unable to state whether it will be possible to adopt the suggestion made in the Question.
