Mr CHIFLEY (Macquarie) (Treasurer) . - The honorable member raised this matter last week. Quite a number of anomalies, particularly in relation to the different forms of company tax. has been mentioned to me. It is impossible for me to give lengthy and deliberate consideration to the many suggestions that have been made, but they will be referred to the special committee of members which has already investigated the proposal that calls paid to mining companies shall be allowed as a deduction. I announced this afternoon that this committee will continue to function for the purpose of considering anomalies in regard to company taxation, and such other tax matters as may be regarded as unduly harsh or unfair in operation. I therefore ask the honorable member, and other honorable members who have in mind anomalies to which attention might bc drawn, to withhold comment pending the examination which I promise will be made.
