Mr BEATON (BENDIGO, VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Treasurer. It has reference to the ray of sunshine which he mentioned a few minutes ago. In view of the fact that the increased sales tax on motor- vehicles, which has recently been discontinued, was not imposed for revenue purposes, and in view also of the grave injustice inflicted on members of the community who purchased vehicles during the period of operation of the increased tax, as well as on many car dealers who have been left with stocks of vehicles on which the higher tax has been paid, will the Government give favorable consideration to the proposal that those who have received unfair treatment should have the extra 10 per cent, tax refunded to them?
