Mr DAVIES (BRADDON, TASMANIA) - In view of the fact that we are now importing almost half of our tin requirements, I ask the Treasurer whether he will consider granting to those engaged in tin mining, especially in the marginal areas, income tax concessions similar to those which apply to the mining of other metals. Does the right honorable gentleman agree that such concessions could stimulate the mining of tin, and so assist in the conservation of Australia's overseas reserves?
