I do not know whether the hon. Gentleman was out of the room when I responded to his questions on the matter—it is possible that he missed what said. I explained that a will is a set of instructions as opposed to a disposition. In that sense, it contrasts with gifts or conveyances when dealing with the transfer of property. Real property left in a will would require further formal transfer. We are dealing with similar matters in paragraph 5(1)(c), but I shall write to him with some specific examples so that we can move the debate on.
