Judgment in Re Elizabeth Longman deceased [2012] EWHC 666 (Ch)

Joshua Winfield appeared for the executors in a case in the Chancery Division concerning the interpretation of a gift in a will to a charity where the charity had merged since the will. The court considered the application of s.75F of the Charities Act 1993 (now s.311 of the Charities Act 2011), which has not been considered before and has caused some controversy, and the section’s interrelation with a standard will clause taken from the Encyclopaedia of Forms and Precedents.
