Advertisement House of Lords approves changes to probate fees Melanie May | 20 December 2018 | News Tagged with: Finance legacies 213 total views, 1 views today 214 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis22 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis22 The House of Lords has agreed the changes to probate fees, which, it has been estimated, could cost the charity sector £10 million in reduced income.The Peers discussed the draft regulation on 18 December. The draft Non-Contentious Probate (Fee) Order introduces a new regime of fees for applications for a grant of probate, with a banded structure based on the value of the estate. Fees would be revised to rise to up to 0.5% of the value of the estate, with the estate value threshold rising from £5,000 to £50,000. This would give a sliding scale of fees rising from £250 to £6,000 on all estates worth £50,000 or more.There was some resistance however with some Peers comparing the proposed changes to a tax. Lord Marks of Henley-on-Thames proposed that the House decline the changes, saying they would be “an abuse of the fee-levying power, since the proposed increased fees substantially exceed the cost involved in making grants of probate and would amount to a tax, which should only be introduced, if at all, by primary legislation.”However, 187 voted against declining the changes, versus 90 for.Lord Beecham also referred to the Order as one that “arguably amounts to a stealth tax”, proposing a motion to regret against the Order, on the grounds that the proposed fee structure was too far above the cost of the service.His motion was agreed however, with 186 members in favour, and 161 against. The motion however does not stop the Order, but gives the House the opportunity to put on record its regret that the increase in fees is far greater than the actual cost of the service.The regulations were presented as a Statutory Instrument (SI), meaning it must be debated in both Houses before it can be made law. It will now go before the House of Commons and could become law in April next year.In November, the Institute of Legacy Management also compared the changes to a stealth tax, saying that while it welcomed the drive to improve the operation of the Court Service and the need to balance the interests of taxpayers and Court Service users, the fees would have a significant impact on income for charities, and could reduce it by £10 million.

But when crime does takes place, as it does in all societies, we will put the victims of crime at the centre of everything we do and ensure crimes are investigated thoroughly and professionally.“I look forward to working with the community, the Policing Authority, the Department of Justice and other stakeholders, to transform An Garda Siochana into a 21st century police service.”Also welcoming the appointment, Fianna Fáil spokesperson on Justice, Deputy Niall Collins said that: “Noirin O’Sullivan took on the role of acting Garda Commissioner in March at a very difficult time for the force and has put in a solid performance since then. In taking up the permanent role of Commissioner she faces the substantial challenge of delivering on the reforms needed throughout our policing structures.“An Garda Síochána is going through a reform process which will involve many structural changes but I also feel it is extremely important that the needs of frontline policing not be forgotten in that process. The Government needs to ensure that the proper resources are made available to allow gardaí to police our communities effectively.“There is an historic opportunity to create a world class policing service in Ireland which not only serves and protects the public but is held up as an international example of best practice, transparency and accountability in years to come,” added Deputy Collins.

We reserve the order”, the bench noted in the order.During the hearing, the bench had asked Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhavan, Bhushan’s counsel, if he was willing to apologize.As per the press release issued by Prashant Bhushan’s office, he refused to tender an apology but agreed to issue the explanation. “In my interview to Tehelka in 2009 I have used the word corruption in a wide sense meaning lack of propriety. I did not mean only financial corruption or deriving any pecuniary advantage. If what I have said caused hurt to any of them or to their families in any way, I regret the same. I unreservedly state that I support the institution of the judiciary and especially the Supreme Court of which I am a part, and had no intention to lower the prestige of the judiciary in which I have complete faith. I regret if my interview was misunderstood as doing so, that is, lower the reputation of the judiciary, especially the Supreme Court, which could never have been my intention at all.”The suo moto case was taken on the basis of a complaint made by Senior Advocate Harish Salve. The contempt proceedings pertain to allegations made by Salve towards Bhushan where Bhushan allegedly said that half of the last 16 Chief Justices were corrupt. As per the complaint, Bhushan also said in the interview that he had no proof for the allegations. The complaint was filed by Salve through an interlocutory application filed in the Sterlite case, in which he was the Amicus Curiae. On November 6, 2009, the complaint was placed before a bench comprising the then Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justice S H Kapadia, which directed that the matter be listed before a 3-judge bench in which Justice Kapadia was not a member. On January 19, 2010, a bench comprising Justices Altamas Kabir, Cyriac Joseph and H L Dattu issued notices to Bhushan and Tarun Tejpal, the Editor-in-Chief of Tehelka magazine.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

STEPHEN ZENNER/AFP via Getty ImageBy EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — A disciplinary hearing was held Monday for Columbus, Ohio, police officer Adam Coy who shot and killed Andre Hill, an unarmed Black man, last week.Columbus Public Safety Director Ned Pettus Jr. will now review the evidence and determine if Coy will keep his job.“Officer Coy was provided an opportunity to be heard by the director who will ultimately make the decision regarding his continued employment,” the Columbus Department of Public Safety said Monday. “Members of the Fraternal Order of Police attended the hearing on behalf of Officer Coy, who was not in attendance.”As Pettus deliberates, Coy has been stripped of all police powers and has surrendered his gun and badge, according to the Department of Public Safety.Columbus Police Chief Thomas Quinlan called for Coy’s termination last week when it was discovered that Coy did not turn on his body camera until after shooting Hill.“Like all of you, I witnessed his critical misconduct firsthand via his body-worn camera,” Quinlan said last week. “I have seen everything I need to see to reach the conclusion that Officer Coy must be terminated immediately.”Hill was shot on Dec. 22 after officers were dispatched to a “non-emergency” disturbance call from a neighbor who allegedly saw a man sitting in an SUV for an extended period of time turning his car on and off, according to the Columbus Department of Public Safety.After Hill came out of a garage, with a phone in his left hand and his right hand obscured, Coy opened fire.Coy then approached Hill and ordered that he show his hands and roll over, before asking a colleague if medics were called. Coy didn’t administer aid, according to the footage.No weapon was found at the scene, and none of the other responding officers had their cameras on until after Hill was shot, according to investigators.The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is conducting a investigation.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
