The Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, has no plans to bring sections 23-25 of the Administration of Justice Act 1982 (registration of wills) into force at present. Persons in England and Wales wishing to deposit a will for safekeeping may do so with the Probate Service on payment of the appropriate fee (currently £20). Various private sector bodies, including many legal practitioners, also offer safekeeping services.
