Mr NELSON (NORTHERN TERRITORY, NORTHERN TERRITORY) - Has the attention of the Prime Minister been directed to the practice which has recently been adopted by the taxation authorities in the Northern Territory of including holiday fares in the taxable incomes of government and nongovernment employees ? I point out that such a decision is causing serious ddiscontent among residents of that part of Australia. As this new policy will have a serious effect upon inducing men, especially married men with families, to accept employment in the Northern Territory, will the right honorable gentleman issue instructions immediately to the taxation authorities to revert to the previous practice of excluding holiday fares from taxable income?
