Macfarlane Trust Special Payment No 2 (MFTSP2)
The Macfarlane (Special Payments) (No. 2) Trust is established on 3 May 1991 (partly out of funds provided by the Secretary of State).

Further capital payments are made in settlement of potential litigation; these payments, which vary in amount according to the recipient's age and family status, total (by May 1993) about 44 million (including 316,000 paid to 158 people who had begun litigation proceedings).

Note: Over a third of the surviving registrants would have been classified as 'INFANTS' at the time of the 1991 settlement payments and, in consequence, received only 21,500 each.
