Mr HUTCHINSON (DEAKIN, VICTORIA) - I ask the Prime Minister in his capacity as Treasurer whether, since more than £1,000,000 has been collected by means of the imposition of a duty on motor chassis for the specific purpose of providing a bounty for the manufacture of complete motor vehicles in Australia and since it appears that more than sufficient exists to pay any contemplated bounty, he will consider remitting this tax at an early date?

Ma-. SPEAKER.- Order! An opinion should not be expressed in asking a question.

Mr MENZIES - I am afraid that all 1 can say is that, as Treasurer, I shall look with considerable reluctance on any proposal to forgo any source of revenue for at least a couple of years.
