Mr BARNARDpresented from certain citizens on Flinders Island a petition showing that Flinders Island is a relatively isolated area because of the problem of transport to and from the island; that transport difficulties and freight costs have led to the high cost of living on Flinders Island; that residents of Flinders Island should be granted income tax concessions in recognition of the disadvantage to which they are subject.

The petitioner pray that the House of Representatives take suitable action to have the Income Tax Assessment Act amended so as to include Flinders Island in Zone B as defined in Part II of the Second Schedule to that Act.

Petition received and read.
