Senator LYNCH (Western Australia) . - I move-

That the words "or a timber lease " be in- inserted after the word " lease," at the end of line 7.

Myobject is to bring under the operation of the measure all the timber leases which are held by private companies and parties throughout the Commonwealth. The amendment on its face pretty well explains itself. We have pastoral and mining leases which are to be subject to taxation. There is certainly an anomaly in not including the large timber leases which exist in Queensland, Western Australia, and other States. I desire by my amendment to secure uniformity, and to destroy any differentiation which otherwise would exist.

Suggest corrections
