Senator DUNCAN-HUGHES (South Australia) . - In respect of these concessional deductions, the allowance in each case is £50 in the aggregate. I presume that -that allowance can be availed of in any form of medical attention. Does the Minister consider that the cost of this particular concession to the Government would be greatly increased if deductions were allowed for dental attention? More important still, does he regard this provision as a principle, or is it' n matter of detail in which the various State governments are in a position to do what they think best? I agree that in this matter uniformity is essential, but as the deduction is limited to £50, I do not think that the inclusion of dental expenditure would make ' very much difference.
