Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) . - The Assistant Minister (Senator Leckie) suggested that the question raised by me will affect only a small number of employers. Although he is well instructed, apparently he does not grasp the trend of business in primary industries. I think that in Queensland most of the canecutting is done by contract. The canegrower surely will not have to pay tax on wages on which the tax has already been paid by the cutting company. Wages are defined in the bill and no regulation made under the act can amend the definition.
