Mr HOLLOWAY (Melbourne Ports) . - At the first glance it would appear that municipalities are likely to suffer if the Government erects workshops on valuable city land, but I cannot see how we can single out the broadcasting commission for special treatment in this case when all Commonwealth enterprises are exempt from municipal taxation. I am opposed to the suggestion ..of the honorable member for Balaclava (Mr. White). It would be ridiculous for a federal department to tax itself. This is a people's concern, and the people are supposed to get the advantage of it.
