Mr Jacobi asked the Attorney-General, upon notice:

Is any review contemplated of the Married Women's Property Act 1 898 (N.S.W.) which is still in force in the Australian Capital Territory and has only been subject to minor amendments.


Mr Ellicott - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Instructions have been given for the drafting of formal amendments to the Married Women's Property Act 1901 of New South Wales as it applies in the Australian Capital Territory. These instructions were given following the report of the Law Reform Commission of the Australian Capital Territory on New South Wales Acts in force in the Australian Capital Territory. A substantive review of this Act as it applies to the Territory will be undertaken, if necessary, when the Queensland Law Reform Commission furnishes its report to the Standing Committee of Commonwealth and State Attorneys-General on proposed uniform State and Territory legislation on matrimonial property (as to which, see answer to Question No. 1432).
