Mr BLACKBURN (Bourke) (11:20 AM) . - This is an objectionable clause. It provides that the States shall not be able to take Id. of income tax until the Commonwealth has collected its income tax. Despite the sanction that the House has given to the main bill, introducing the uniform taxation system, I regard this clause as a bad and unfair provision and a part of a scheme which in my judgment violates the principles on which the Constitution is based without the people being consulted.
