HC Deb 04 March 1946 vol 420 cc26-7W
Sir H. Webbe

asked the Attorney- General whether, in cases where an applicant for probate is invalid or infirm, arrangements can be made for the estate duty accounts and other necessary papers to be lodged by a friend of the applicant and so avoid the expense of instructing a solicitor in cases where the estate involved is very small.

The Attorney-General

I am obliged to the hon Member for bringing the matter to notice. The possibility of arranging special facilities where the applicant for probate or letters of administration to an estate of small value is an invalid or is infirm, is being examined by the President of the Probate Division
