Abstract

Roger Kerridge examines the Department for Constitutional Affairs' 2005 Consultation Paper which suggests that the statutory legacy to a surviving spouse should be more than doubled. He queries the statistics on which the Consultation Paper is based and wonders whether hotchpot could not be re-introduced and then extended to cover property held by married couples as beneficial joint tenants.
