To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what steps he is taking to promote the making of wills; and if he will make a statement.
20 July 2015
The law of succession is devolved in Northern Ireland. My Department promoted the making of wills in England and Wales as part of a public awareness raising campaign during March this year. Choice Not Chance used traditional and social media to highlight the benefits of making a will and the consequences of not doing so. The key messages and digital material continue to be used by stakeholders and we will continue to push the importance of making a will via our social media channels.
