Mr LAZZARINI (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Treasurer, upon notice -

1.   Whether it is a fact that the Government allow war bonds to be accepted in payment of probate duties?

2.   Is it a fact that wealthy people buy these bonds at £91 or £92 on the Stock Exchange, and tender them to the Government in payment of probate duties at par value, £100? 3.Will he take steps to stop this great leakage of Commonwealth revenue, especially now, when the Government are in such urgent need of funds?
