HC Deb 27 March 1907 vol 171 c1771

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if the public trustee, appointed under the Land Purchase Act of 1903, can act as trustee in cases other than of sales under that Act.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The public trustee is appointed solely for the purposes of the Land Purchase Acts, and I am advised that he cannot, as such, act as trustee of moneys other than the proceeds of sales under those Acts.
