Senator VARDON (South Australia) . - I wish to ask the Vice-President of the Executive Council a question in regard to paragraph c. under which it is proposed to exempt from taxation all land owned by any society registered under a State Act relating to friendly societies or trade unions.

Senator Guthrie - Does the honorable senator wish to eliminate friendly societies from that provision?

Senator VARDON - No. But, inasmuch as it is proposed to make this concession to trade unions, I wish to know whether a similar concession will be made to an employers' union, or whether such a union will be covered by the new clause which the Vice-President of the Executive Council intends to submit?

Senator McGregor - Yes.

Senator VARDON - DoI understand the honorable gentleman to say that an employers' union will be equally exempt from taxation?
