Senator E B JOHNSTON (Western Australia) . - I move -

That the word "thirty-eight" be left out with a view to insert in lieu thereof the word " forty ".

This clause provides that the averaging of incomes, other than those of primary producers, shall end after the 30th June, 1938. As during the depression all classes of the community had to submit to the averaging of their incomes, which acted to their disadvantage, the term of two years proposed in this clause is too short. In order that the lower incomes of the depression years may be taken into account now that conditions are improving, the term should be at least four years.
