Senator BAKHAP (Tasmania) . - So far as I can see, it is nowhere expressly stated in this Bill that mortgages are exempt from the calculation of the value of an estate for the purpose of assessment. I admit that in one or two places it seems to be implied, but I should like to be clear that it is not the intention of the Government to provide that mortgages shall not be construed as debts.
