Senator FINDLEY (VICTORIA) - May I ask the Minister whether the statements published in the press - the Minister knows what they are - are correct or incorrect?

Senator PEARCE - Not having read the newspapers this morning, beyond glancing at the headlines, I am not in a position to say whether the statements made as to the Government's taxation proposals are incorrect or otherwise. A statement of policy will be made by the Prime Minister or the Treasurer when the bill is introduced in another place, and subsequently by myself or some other Minister when the measure comes before this Chamber.

Senator FINDLEY - "Will the Minister say whether or not the statements as published in the press properly indicate the intentions of the Government?

Senator PEARCE - I am afraid the honorable senator's last question is out of my depth. I cannot answer it.
