Senator Vigor: To move 12 sitting days after today-That section 3 of the New South Wales Acts Application Ordinance 1985, as contained in Australian Capital Territory Ordinance No. 25 of 1985 and made under the Seat of Government (Administration) Act 1910, be disallowed.

Senator Foreman: To move on the next day of sitting-That the Senate commends the Hawke Government on its recent tax package, which in the interests of taxation justice and economic growth contains both bold and imaginative changes, in particular, changes which will result in-

(a) a stop to the unsavoury growth over recent years of tax evasion by the payment of untaxed perks instead of taxable income;

(b) an effective capital gains tax which is necessary to discourage the conversion of what would be taxed income into untaxed capital gains; and

(c) an effective capital gains tax component in the taxation armoury which will discourage unproductive over-investment in speculative areas such as domestic housing and rural land, which to date has resulted in home buyers paying a market price fuelled by speculation, and primary producers failing to obtain a decent return on investment because of overpriced farming land.
