Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister of Defence) .- I would point out to those who are criticising this clause that it is not one-fiftieth of the total estate which would have to pay duty in the circumstances which have been outlined by them, but the small beneficiary will be charged one-fiftieth of the duty in respect of his share of the estate.

Senator PEARCE - Yes, the balance of his share.
