Mr SPENDER (Warringah) .- T should like to know why real property situate abroad is to be brought within the provisions of the act. I can understand why, when a person domiciled in this country disposes of personal property wherever situate, that property should be brought within the gift provisions of this measure, but I find it difficult to understand the inclusion of real property situate elsewhere. I have not had time to study the Queensland act or the New Zealand act, but I understand that the latter provides that no real property, except that situate in New Zealand, shall be levied upon. I suggest that this point should be considered and, if necessary, an appropriate amendment made.
