functions are vested in an administrator he may perform, or refrain from
performing, in relation to the estate of the represented person, or any part
of the estate, any function that the represented person could himself perform,
or refrain from performing, if he were of full legal capacity.
subsection (2), a plenary administrator may not make a will or other
testamentary disposition on behalf of a represented person, but this
subsection does not affect the operation of section 111A.

administrator, it may, under that section, authorise the administrator to
perform any specified function, including one or more of those set out in Part

Administrative Tribunal may require a function to be performed by an
administrator and may give directions as to the time, manner or circumstances
of the performance.
(5) In exercising its
jurisdiction under this Part the State Administrative Tribunal may take a
liberal view of the best interests of the represented person as mentioned in
section 4(2), and in particular may, if the circumstances so require, empower
an administrator to make a payment or enter into a transaction of a kind
described in section 72(3) on behalf of the represented person.
