Senator CRAWFORD (QueenslandHonorary Minister) . - The amendment moved by Senator Needham is similar to one which was moved in another place, and subsequently withdrawn. It is a far-reaching amendment, and I am informed by the taxation authorities goes considerably further than Senator Elliott's, because it dispenses with not only the management requirements, but also the need for residence in Australia. Having declined to accept Senator Elliott's amendment, the Government has greater reason for declining to . accept Senator Needham's proposal. The honorable senator now proposes to exempt all the persons proposed to be exempted by Senator Elliott, and others in addition. Therefore, all I have said in regard to the proposal of Senator Elliott applies with greater force to Senator Needham's amendment, and I trust the committee will reject it.
