Senator McGREGOR (South AustraliaVicePresident of the Executive Council) . - I am very sorry that Senator W. Russell is not satisfied.

Senator W RUSSELL (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Who could be satisfied ?

Senator McGREGOR - I do not know that it is always necessary, in moving the second reading of a Bill to amend an Act with which everybody is familiar, to make a long speech. I am prepared to give any explanation that is required on any clause. As to joint owners, the provisions of the Bill are practically the same as those of the principal Act, except that the new definition makes it more clear that those who receive any benefit from an estate shall pay the full tax in the aggregate, whilst individually they pay only a fair share according to the amount they hold.

Clause agreed to.

Clause 3 (Tenants for Life).
