Senator McGREGOR (South AustraliaVicePresident of the Executive Council) . - I move -

That the following new paragraph be added after sub-paragraph 2 of paragraph g : - " 2a. A building occupied by a masonic society, or by a club or association of members of a trade or profession not carried on for pecuniary profit."

This amendment is intended to take away any hardship that may be placed upon the members of an association that is not worked for pecuniary profit. Honorable senators are aware that some Masonic Societies, Commercial Travellers' Associations, and associations formed in connexion with trades or professions, have erected buildings purely for the purpose of carrying on the work of their associations. In connexion with the Commercial Travellers' Associations, for instance, there are funds for the benefit of widows and orphans, and also funds for educational purposes. Other associations have charitable funds. It is desired to exempt the lands occupied by such societies.
