Dear (Sir's) ,

A fiduciary duty is a legal or ethical relationship of confidence
or trust between two or more parties , most commonly a fiduciary or
trustee and a principal or beneficiary.

In a fiduciary relation one person justifiably reposes confidence,
good faith , reliance and trust in another whose aid, advice or
protection is sought in some matter. In such a relation good
conscience requires one to act at all times for the sole benefit
and interests of another, with loyalty to those interests.

This is NOT happening in HMCS and a clear conflict of interest
prevail between ‘professionals’ within local authorities and the
families comprising of men/women/offspring(children)they claim to
re-pre-sent to the state.

What information does your department hold about your fiduciary
duty and is this to the people. i.e. real men/women/their
offspring(children) or to the Crown i.e. City of London.

yours Truly,

William:Sterling
