'Death tax' rise to 6K is finally scrapped

A threatened 'death tax' of up to £6,000 on grieving families was ditched by government over the weekend.

Justice Secretary Robert Buckland told the Daily Mail a planned hike to probate charges - of as much as 2,700 per cent for some better off bereaved people - was not 'fair and proportionate'.

Applying for probate is an important step to gain control over an estate after someone dies and the proposed new sliding scale of fees had provoked outrage among politicians, lawyers and inheritance experts.
