Chapter 15
The Public Trust


15.1In the Preferred Approach Paper, we proposed that the Public Trust be given a number of new roles.298 This was the first time we had suggested that the Public Trust’s role under new trusts legislation could be expanded from what it is now, and we received significant feedback on the proposals. As a result we have altered the approach to limit the new roles for the Public Trust to those that are within its current skillset and expertise.
