Me. WHITLAM. - I address a question to the Treasurer. The right honorable gentleman knows that sales tax collected in any month does not have to be paid to the Commissioner of Taxation until the twentyfirst day of the following month, and that, consequently, none of the sales tax paid on motor cars last month has yet been received by the Treasury. I therefore ask the Treasurer: What would prevent the Commissioner of Taxation, next week, receiving only three-quarters of the sales tax paid on motor cars between the commencement of last month and the date of the Prime Minister's volte face, so that the remaining one- quarter of tax paid by purchasers of motor cars during that period might be refunded?
