Senator DARCEY (Tasmania) . - Prom time to time the Opposition, true to the political axiom that it is the ditty of an opposition to oppose, attempts to defeat measures that are of great value to the people. In the last few days, honorable senators opposite have opposed the uniform income taxation, bills. They have allowed loan measures to go through without any opposition. I take this opportunity to bring this matter before the notice of the Senate. It. is very hard to look after the interests of the taxpayers. Members of this Parliament take the oath to do their best for their King, and country, and, after all, the taxpayers are citizens of this country. Notwithstanding the protests that have been made, the policy of raising large loans has been, continued, without bringing any challenge from the Opposition in this chamber.
