3.  
The provisions of paragraph 1 shall not apply in relation to interest, to which Article 11 applies and to which a resident of Australia is beneficially entitled, until such time as the law of Papua New Guinea relating to Papua New Guinea tax provides for source rules, in relation to interest, consistent with those provisions.
