Senator BROWN - I ask the Minister representing the Treasurer whether the Government intends to amend the Income Tax Assessment Act with a view to enabling the facte to be placed before Parliament concerning the remission of huge sums of money to wealthy taxpayers? Is it true that the sum of 42,000 was remitted in respect of the income tax assessment of one James Yates? If so, will the Government take action to reduce, or remit, the taxes of many of the poorer sections of the community who cannot meet the payment of their taxes?
