12.42Where there is doubt as to what advertisements should be published by a trustee giving notice advertising for claims before distributing property under a trust, the court has a power to give directions under section 35(4). Where the trustees obtain and comply with such directions they are protected against personal liability.
12.43The options for modernising the approach to advertising and giving notice that we have just discussed in relation to section 76 also apply in relation to section 35. We recommend that the approach recommended for modernising the advertising requirements in section 76 should also be taken here. Again, for the reasons already discussed we have not proceeded with the proposal in the Preferred Approach Paper that would have conferred an advisory role on the Public Trust in relation to advertising for claims here either.
