star this property answer text <p>The National Fund was set up by a trust deed in 1928. The Fund is held on trust for the purpose of reducing the National Debt. According to expert evidence, there is no realistic prospect of the Fund ever amounting to a sum sufficient to pay off the whole of the National Debt.</p><p>The application made by the then Attorney General to the High Court on 22nd May 2018, to release the assets of the National Fund in order to pay down national debt, has not yet concluded. In February 2019 the High Court Listing Officer allocated a three day hearing during a five day window starting on 18 November 2019.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The National Fund was created in 1928 with an initial anonymous donation of £500,000 with the aim of eventually extinguishing the national debt. It has accumulated significant funds through further donations and income over the years, as set out in the <strong><ins class="ministerial">attached </ins></strong>chart <del class="ministerial">below</del>. It is currently estimated to be worth over £460 million.</p><p>The terms of the deed of Trust for the National Fund are such that the Trustees are required to accumulate the net income and profits of the trust fund until the value of the fund along with its accumulated income, when added to the value of any other funds applicable for the same purpose, is sufficient to discharge the entirety of the National Debt. Given the terms of the trust, the money is currently ‘locked’ in the fund.</p><p>The Attorney General’s Office is working with the Charity Commission and the Fund’s trustees to help resolve this legally complicated matter.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
