Senator LECKIE (Victoria) .- I move -

That the word" sixty " be left out with a view to insert in lieu thereof the word " ninety ".

If taxpayers are overseas, a period of 60 days is not sufficient to enable their agents to communicate with them, and to receive a reply in time to lodge objections. I understand that at present the period for lodging objections is 60 days, and that an extra 30 days may be allowed at the discretion of the Commissioner.

Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - It is 42 days, with an extra discretionary allowance of 30 days, or 72 days in all.

Senator LECKIE - My proposal will relieve the fears of agents whose principals are overseas at the time assessments are received.
