Senator AYLETT asked the Minister representing the Treasurer, upon notice -

1.   Has any regulation been made abolishing exemptions allowed over and above a wife and one child for income tax purposes?

2.   If not, who instructed the Commissioner of Taxation to circularize taxpayers to the effect that the only family deductions allowed are for a wife and one child; and under whose authority were such instructions issued?

3.   If the reply to No. 1 is in the affirmative, is it not a grave injustice to the taxpayers to disallow such deductions on last year's return, seeing that child endowment was not in operation in 1940-41?
