Mr Jacobi asked the Attorney-General, upon notice:

Is any review likely of the legislation relating to wills in the Northern Territory and Australian Capital Territory by introducing legislation relating to formal validity of wills and adoption of the international will.

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

Legislation relating to the formal validity of wills already exists under the Wills Ordinance 1968 of the Australian Capital Territory and the Wills Ordinance 1938 of the Northern Territory. So far as my Department is aware no action is currently being taken to review this legislation and no action has yet been taken to implement the Convention Providing a Uniform Law on the Form of an International Will. I would propose to discuss the implementation of this Convention in due course with the State Attorneys-General.
