Mr MARWICK (Swan) .- I direct the attention of the Treasurer (Mr.- Chifley) to item 2- "Office requisites and equipment, stationery and printing, £68,830 "-and to item' 12- " Payments to State governments for rent of furniture and equipment, £10,240 " - under the general expenses section of division No. 25, which relates to the taxation office. The Commonwealth Government is taking over the functions of some of the State taxation departments, which have hitherto collected income tax on its behalf. I hope that this change-over will not result in a repetition in the taxation office of what happened in the Allied Works Council, and that there will not be expenditure on refurnishing and reequipping the taxation offices. What wa3 good enough for the State taxation offices should be good enough for the Commonwealth.
