Senator LAUGHT (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Treasurer. Has the Government considered the request from the Taxpayers' Association of Australia for a reasonable period of delay in the passage of the legislation recently presented to Parliament by the Treasurer arising from the report of the Ligertwood committee? The Taxpayers' Association has pointed out to me that the principal Bill runs to 62 pages and a supplementary memorandum extends to 116 pages. The Association claims that the revenue will be in no way prejudiced if the passage of the legislation is held over to the sittings of the Parliament in the autumn of 1965. It believes that responsible bodies outside the Parliament and the Public Service can make useful contributions to the eventual shape of the legislation.
