OBJECTS AND REASONS.

As the law stands at present in the Colony a personal

person dying after the passing into law of the Bill but damages
will be limited in the manner appearing in subsection (2) of
clause 2.
4. Proceedings against the estate of a deceased person
must be pending at the date of his death or the cause of action
must have arisen not earlier than six months before his death
and proceedings taken not later than six months after his
personal representatives' have taken out representation.
5. Any rights conferred under the Bill are separate
and apart from such rights as fall to dependants of deceased
persons under the Fatal Accidents Act (Cap. 8) or the Carriage
by Air Act, 1932 (Imperial.
