Mr MARR (for Sir Robert Best) asked the Treasurer, upon notice-

1.   Mr. Chamberlain,the Chancellor of the Exchequer, having announced in his Budget speech this year that, in order to afford relief to double income taxpayers, a refund of half the tax paid in the British self-governing communities to an amount not exceeding 4s. 3d. in the £1 would be refunded by the British Government, and he having further stated that all the Dominion Governments had agreed to make a similar concession - will the Treasurer state what measures he proposes to take to give effect to this promise?

2.   Is it a fact that there is considerable money awaiting investment from the old world contingent on this relief being granted, and people who already have large investments in Australia are awaiting this relief in order to determine whether it is worth their while to continue such investments?
