Major Hicks Beach
asked the Lord Advocate when he expects to receive the Report of the Law Reform Committee on the question of applying the Variation of Trusts Act, 1958, to Scotland as well as England.
The Lord Advocate
The Law Reform Committee for Scotland is at present considering the law relating to—
- (a) the powers of trustees to sell, purchase or otherwise deal with heritable property, and
- (b) the variation of trust purposes.
I expect to receive their Report very shortly after Easter.
