To ask Her Majesty's Government how many associated Fee Waivers the Court of Protection has received in respect of Child Trust Fund applications; and how many have been granted.
29 July 2021
The Court of Protection has received fifteen applications since August 2020 where the assets included a Child Trust Fund. Of the fifteen applications received, thirteen have resulted in a deputy being appointed. The remaining two applications resulted in ‘one off’ orders. In four cases, a Child Trust Fund was the sole asset and the court fees were waived.
