Question No. 273


Mr Andrew asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 26 May 1983:

In view of the unprecedented fire damage experienced in South Australia, particularly in the Adelaide Hills, South East and Clare District, and the tax deductibility provision granted to donors to fire relief funds, will he consider making private donations for replacement Country Fire Service equipment or additional fire fighting equipment in fire ravaged areas also tax deductible?


Mr Keating —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Donations of $2 and upwards to Country Fire Services and Volunteer Fire Fighting Associations registered with the Director of Country Fire Services, South Australia, qualify as income tax deductions under the existing provisions of the income tax law.
