asked the Attorney-General how many members of the public visited the principal Probate Registry and its subordinate offices on Good Friday.

Sixty-three members of the public visited the various District Probate Registries (26) on Good Friday. In London, there is no record of the exact number of persons who visited the Personal Applications Department of the Principal Probate Registry, but there were 13 new applications and 27 second attendances which, I am advised, would involve the appearance of approximately 80 people, I would point out that the number of persons who visit these Registries is no indication of the work done. Most of the Registries reported that Good Friday had been a busy day and that the mail had been heavy. In one District Registry, where no applicants appeared in person, 20 new applications were received by post.
