Mr LYONS - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : - 1. (a) Collected at the Taxation Department Offices, £3,767,824; collected at the Customs Houses, £ 300,208; total for period 1st August, 1930 to 19th February, 1932, £4,069,092. (b) Collected at the Taxation Department Offices, £3,781,580; collected at the Customs Houses, £340,300; total for period 11th July, 1931 to 19th February, 1932, £4,121,949.

2.   The exact cost cannot be ascertained, as part of the cost is incurred in the Taxation Department and part in the Customs Department. Information as to salaries of sales tax officers will be ascertained and supplied at a later date, but it will not be practicable to apportion between sales tax and other Commonwealth taxes, the salaries of administrative and senior officers who apply themselves to the administration of all Commonwealth taxes. It is not economically practicable to apportion the general working expenses of the department between the various taxes.
