Question No. 175


Mr Blanchard asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 19 May 1983:

(1) Can the Minister say in which countries tax deductions are permitted for the cost of keeping pre-school children at approved child care centres; if so, what amount is deductible in each country.

(2) Has the Government considered a similar course of action.


Mr Keating —The answers to the honourable member's question are as follows:

(1) The Government is aware that there are countries which permit some form of taxation relief for the cost of keeping pre-school children at approved child- care centres. Such information as is held on this subject is, however, incomplete. It is not possible, therefore, to state with any accuracy the extent of the relief available.

(2) No.
