Isn't this rather more of a taxation question? Namely the tax treatment of a life assurance policy written under Trust.

Yes, the point of its being in trust is that it is not legally yours, so falls outside your Estate if you die, avoiding Inheritance Tax. The trustees then use their discretion to pay the proceeds according to your previously stated wishes (technically they don't have to, but if they didn't they'd be out of a job).
