Mr WHITE - The Caulfield Central

Branch of the Returned Sailors, Soldiers, and Airmen's Imperial League of Australia has launched an appeal for £20,000 for the purpose of building a memorial hall. The project was approved by the Patriotic Council of Victoria. The branch has now learned that subscriptions will not be deductible from income for taxation purposes. As most memorials are not taxable, and those likely to' be provided to commemorate sacrifices in the last war will be of a utilitarian character - for example, memorial halls and hospitals - will the Treasurer examine the proposition that contributions to memorial halls shall be free from tax?
