Senator WALSH (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Acting Treasurer. Is a member of Parliament considered to be fully employed as a member of Parliament? If so, is the Minister able to give an assurance that any income received by members, other than the parliamentary salary, will attract the 10 per cent surtax on income from property?

Senator WRIEDT (TASMANIA) (Minister for Agriculture) - I would understand that the answer to the question would be yes. Nevertheless, I shall refer the question to the Acting Treasurer and let him give an answer to it.
