The CHAIRMAN (Mr Prowse (FORREST, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Order! This clause contains no reference to the Country party.

Mr CALWELL - I referred to the graziers who own the Country party and who, by making those gifts to it, may escape their taxation obligations to the Commonwealth. For once, 1 join with the honorable member for Barker (Mr. Archie Cameron), who declared that the exemption which has been granted to sporting clubs and associations is a farcical provision in a measure the express purpose of which is to raise additional revenue in order to supplement war finance. I see no reason in the world to justify that exemption.
