Senator COTTON (New South WalesMinister for Civil Aviation) - I have asked the advisers from the Treasury briefly about this matter. I am assured that what I understood to be the case is the case and that policy is determined at the centre, that is, at the central office of the Taxation Office. If there is a variation therefore State by State, it is competent I think to have that question of policy determination checked out and to say: 'There is not a continuous line of policy expressed in these determinations'. That is the only way in which I can suggest the matter be dealt with. The business of taxation is very much an individual matter; sometimes people must submit individual cases for evaluation. AH that I can suggest is that if a person finds that there is a differentiation between one State and another he should bear in mind the observation that policy is determined by the Commissioner as such and that action is delegated to the State Deputy Commissioners as his deputies.
