Dr MALONEY (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - In view of the fact that it is not considered derogatory in the United Kingdom that the amount of allowances, salaries, and wages paid to the King, his Ministers, Judges of all the Courts, public servants, members of Parliament, officers, and privates of the Navy and Army should be published and thus made widely known, will the Prime Minister request his Cabinet to. consider the advisability of publishing, in a special number of the Commonwealth Government Gazette, a list of all persons in Australia who are in receipt of salary or wages of £750 per annum and upwards, as shown by the Federal income tax returns, giving the amount of income tax paid opposite the names of those who pay it, and showing also the value of war bonds and stock of other loans held by each of these persons? Will he also make public similar information regarding the public, proprietary, and other companies of Australia, so that the citizens of this country may readily ascertain if such persons have done their duty to their country in its past and present difficulties?
