Senator KEATING (Tasmania) .- Will the word " administrator " cover the person who will be liable for the duty? I do not quite realize the scope of the Bill, but I presume that it applies not only in cases of intestacy, but also in cases of wills. Will the word "administrator," proposed to be inserted, cover the ease of an executor?

Senator Pearce - It is covered by th6 definition in clause 3.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

(a)   extend the time for payment as he considers the circumstances warrant; or

(b)   permit the payment of the duty to be made by instalments:

Provided that the whole of the duty payable shall be paid within a period of two years.
