Mr WEBB (STIRLING, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - My question is directed to the Treasurer. I draw attention to the heavy increase in road fatalities and the need for the Australian Government to take urgent action to reduce them. Has the Treasurer seen a resolution adopted by the Australian Automobile Association urging the Commonwealth Government to give financial encouragement for the design of safe vehicles by reducing sales tax on vehicles which conform to Australian Motor Vehicle Standards Commitee regulations concerning dangerous fittings? These provide for external equipment to be so constructed as to minimise bodily injury and for the interior to be so constructed as to minimise the probability of injury to the occupants. Will the Treasurer explain his attitude to these worthwhile recommendations?
