Mr TURNBULL (WentworthPrime Minister) (15:10): I discern from the member for Grayndler's questions that he was inquiring as to the government's intentions with respect to taxing land. I can assure the honourable member that the government has no intention—no plans whatsoever—to impose taxes on land of the kind that he describes, and I would doubt very much whether there was any constitutional ability to do so in any event.

Mr Albanese: Mr Speaker—

The SPEAKER: The member for Grayndler will resume his seat. The Prime Minister is entitled to add to an answer.

Mr Albanese: Yes, but he can't verbal me.

The SPEAKER: You can use other forms of the House later.

Mr Albanese: I'm trying to do so.

The SPEAKER: Now is not the time. After documents have been presented, if you would like to make a personal explanation, you can.
