Wills Amendment (International Wills) Bill 2012
Written on the 20 June 2012
I am also pleased to rise to speak on the Legal and Social Issues Legislation Committee report on the inquiry into the Wills Amendment (International Wills) Bill 2011. At the outset I also acknowledge and thank the committee secretariat -- Richard Willis, Lisa Kazalac and Sean Marshall -- for their time and effort in conducting this inquiry, and I thank the organisations that came before us to give evidence on this issue. I also support the comments of other members of the committee by saying I am pleased that there was unanimous support and there is no minority report in relation to this inquiry. In addition I am pleased the house referred the bill to the committee without dissent.
