Mr WILSON (WIMMERA, VICTORIA) - I have received from the Mildura Hospital Board a communication relating to the taxation proposals of the Government as they affect donations to hospitals. I quote from it the following: -

For some time we have received an annual donation of £400 from this company. Under the new proposal of the Government, if this company continues to donate £400 per annum they will be required to pay another £300 in tax - in other words, to give us a donation of £400 they will have to make an outlay of £700- and I understand that the company is likely to take a very serious view of the matter, and it is quite possible that our annual grant from this source will be seriously curtailed if the proposed legislation becomes operative.

I ask the Treasurer whether such a result is implicit in the taxation proposals of the Government as they affect donations to hospitals. If so, does he intend to allow such a condition to continue?
