Mr REYNOLDS (BARTON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Treasurer whether the Government recognizes the very important part being played by Churches, the scouting organization and various non-profit sporting bodies in the training of youth in Australia. If it does, will the Government give practical encouragement to such worthy organizations by exempting them from the payment of sales tax on sporting equipment purchased by them for use in their youth training and recreation programmes? Does the Government realize that the current sales tax is depriving these worthy groups of material urgently needed for the great task confronting them?
