§ MR. FLYNN (Cork, N.)
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, in regard to resealing in England Irish letters of probate and administration, is he aware that some English Insurance Companies will not pay claims in Ireland under policies unless the process of resealing, which devolves delay and expense, has been gone through; and, whether he will recommend such a change in the law as will make this practice illegal?
§ THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr ATKINSON,) Londonderry, N.
The answer to the first paragraph is in the affirmative. A general change in the law relating to the administration of assets of deceased persons would be necessary to effect the object of the honourable Member. This I cannot undertake to recommend.
§ MR. ATKINSON
The honourable Member is under a misapprehension. Under the 94th Section of the 20 and 21 Vict. cap. 79, probates granted in England can be resealed and acted upon in Ireland, just as under the 95th Section of the same Act, probates granted in Ireland can be resealed and acted upon in England.
