Mr CLAY (ST GEORGE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Treasurer. Has it come to the notice of the right honorable gentleman that a group of more than 40 local government councils in New South Wales are canvassing ways and means whereby a local government tax on all income-earners in a municipality might be imposed with a view to spreading more equitably the 'burden of rates at present being borne by home-owners or buyers or any person who owns any real estate, in the knowledge that there are many persons, young or otherwise, with incomes large or small, who own no real estate and therefore pay no rates, but who do stand or use their cars upon council roads or use the swimming pools, libraries and other amenities provided by councils through the ratepayers?
