HC Deb 26 March 1968 vol 761 c239W
Mrs. Ewing

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, why, in Scotland, confirmation dues are higher than Probate Court fees in England.

Mr. Diamond

Confirmation dues in Scotland are prescribed by Act of Sederunt made by the Court of Session with the concurrence of the Treasury.

The present level of dues was the subject of comment by the Committee on the Sheriff Court, Cmnd. 3248, and the Committee's recommendations on this matter are under consideration.
