Senator McBRIDE - The Treasurer has supplied the following answers -

1.   No such regulation has been made.

2.   The Commissioner of Taxation did not so circularize taxpayers. The Treasury Department, however, has circularized all paying officers in the Commonwealth Public Service to limit the concessional deductions to the wife and one child when calculating the instalment deduction to be made for purposes of the Commonwealth Public Service group scheme. It has been done with the Treasurer's authority. Pending an amendment of the law, however, deductions for all dependent children will be allowed in any actual assessments which may be made.

3.   The approval set out in No. 2 does not do any grave injustice to any taxpayer having regard to the group scheme of instalment deductions.
