Mr L R JOHNSON (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Treasurer considered a published admission by a Sydney taxation agent that he had defrauded the Taxation Branch of some £80,000, involving more than 5,000 faked income tax returns? Is it a fact that this agent has been apprehended only in regard to a few of the offences which involve approximately £1,100? How is it possible for an agent to escape detection on so many tax evasion counts? Have steps been taken to overhaul tax evasion detection methods since this alarming disclosure was made some months ago?
