Mr MORGAN - Would it not be a matter of the doij. doing the rest?

Mr SPENDER - The donee, of course, does it. It is because the donor has done all that is necessary to be done, that the law says that it is a perfectly good gift. But the clause says that the donor must do both what is necessary to be done and what is possible for him to do. My objection is to the inclusion of the words " and possible for him to do ". These words must be given some meaning. The words are not " or possible '".

I.   feel certain that the result will be to exclude many transactions which the Government has in mind and intends to except, and leave open to considerable doubt in any particular case, having regard to the nature of the property dealt with, what is possible to be done by the donor to divest himself of the property.
