REVERSAL, OF DECISION P.A. WELLINGTON, Tuesday. The Court of Appeal to-day gave judgment in the appeal of Beryl Evelyn McClurg and Mavis Althea Raymond against a judgment of the Supreme Court in Auckland in the case concerning the will of the late Charles Vince Houghton, retired company manager, who died in July, 1942, leaving estate of approximately £127,000. The testator had executed two settlements in February, 1941, covering, shares valued at £26,000 in favour of the appellants, and the Supreme Court had held that a direction in the will requiring the trustees to pay death, succession and other duties did not cover additional estate and succession duties payable by virtue of the inclusion in the estate of the assets comprised in these two deeds of settlement.

The Court of Appeal to-day reversed the decision of the Supreme Court and held that the wording of the will was sufficient to include duties on the property comprised in the settlements.
