Probate fees

I lobbied the government against the proposed increase in probate fees. I was pleased to learn yesterday that they are not proceeding with this increase in the present Parliament. I hope they do not reappear in the Manifesto.

    Thank you for your efforts. It was nothing other than a tax, and was a shoddy attempt in my view to present it as a simple cost for a service. Voters are not stupid, and if there is another attempt to introduce it in the manifesto it will lose Conservatives precious votes.

    Pleased about the stay of execution for the “Death Tax” because that is what it was going to be.

    I hope it will not reappear under a different label during the next Parliament.

    Thank you for contesting this attempt at deception.

    I hope you will continue to do so if it is raised as a suggestion in the future.
