Mr FORBES (BARKER, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - My question as addressed to the Treasurer. Is the right honorable gentleman aware that the South Australian Parliament is currently considering a proposal to give partial rebates of- succession duties- in respect of properties used forprimary production where such properties are left to relatives who intend- to. continue to use the properties for- primary production? In view of the detrimental effect on the Australian economy, and on the individuals concerned, when properties or portions of properties have to be sold in order to pay succession: and; estate duties, will the Minister consider bringing-, the federal estate duty into line with the new provisions being inserted in- the South Australian Succesion Duties Act?
