Senator DAVIDSON (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) -My question is directed to the Minister representing the Treasurer, ls it a fact, as reported today, that the Government is proposing to withdraw as allowable deductions for income tax all donations to charities, with the exception of the Red Cross? If so, does the Government plan to provide further finance for the scores of institutions, voluntary services and establishments which contribute to our quality of life and which depend upon donations? If not, will an early announcement be made to allay the fears of tens of thousands of voluntary workers who maintain Australian charities?

Senator WRIEDT -I have no knowledge of the matter referred to. I shall have to pass on the question to the Treasurer for an answer.
