1.   Will he state the amounts paid in stock or bonds for succession or probate duties each year?

2.   What is the total amount of stock or bonds that have been cancelled up to the 30th June, 1920?

3.   Is it a fact that the Commonwealth Government stock and bonds have been purchased at a discount from 5 to 10 per cent. in connexion with the payment of succession or probate duties?
