Consultation on Probate statistics:
Currently data on grants of representation issued at published in Tables 25 and 26, including a split by registry type (Principal and District registries). To make sure that our statistics are responding to user needs, we are consulting on the following points and would welcome your views:
- With the introduction of new Courts and Tribunals Service Centres, would changing the split by registry type to be CTSC/non CTSC registries be useful, or would you suggest removing this split entirely?
- To fully understand the case flow of The Probate Service, we are interested in introducing a measure relating to timeliness:
a) Would the average number of weeks from application submission to grant issue be useful?
b) Do you have any other suggestions for a timeliness measure for us to consider?
