Probate Service: Staff

Question for Ministry of Justice

UIN 264764, tabled on 14 June 2019

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what proportion of staff have been redeployed from the HMRC probate team to other Departments in the last 12 months; and whether the probate registry is understaffed as a result.

Answered on

The administration of the probate service is the responsibility of Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service. No staff have been redeployed from the probate service to other departments in the last 12 months and therefore there has been no change on the staffing levels.
