Mr GILES (ANGAS, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I address a question to the Treasurer. Is it a fact that professional and other working women who require domestic help in the house, or for child minding purposes, are unable to claim such costs as a deduction against taxable income? If this is so, does this discriminate against women or are males also denied such deductions? Will the Treasurer have a look at the implications of this question in relation to the drawing up of the next Budget, including the costs concerned in child minding centres?

Mr Griffiths - I asked a similar question last week.
