Mr HAROLD HOLT - The question is in line and in character with those that have come from other honorable gentlemen opposite. The reference to fresh faced youths is used as though it is a nutter of unfavourable comment. I do not know whether the honorable gentleman would prefer the bearded youths we see carrying placards around outside Parliament House. He asked whether we propose to conscript wealth.

As incomes are earned they carry their proportion of tax ind thai persists for purposes of defence as well as for general welfare purposes.
