I beg to move, in page 11, line 34, to leave out "made," and to insert "executed."

There are one or two passages in the Bill in which reference is made to a will made on a certain date. A recent decision in the Courts, which is under appeal, might be regarded as throwing some doubt on whether the word "made" did, as we intended, refer to the date when the will was executed, and in order that no such doubt shall arise this and the following Amendment are proposed.
