Senator KEANE - The Treasurer has supplied the following answer : -

The question evidently relates to instalments which have been deducted from the pay of home service personnel for the purpose of meeting any income tax which will be payable by the soldiers concerned. The amounts deducted do not represent tax which has been paid by those soldiers. The Income Tax Assessment Act and the departmental procedure make full provision for refunding all amounts in excess of the tax payable.
