Senator MAUNSELL (QUEENSLAND) - Has the Minister representing the Treasurer received protests against the Government's proposed capital gains tax and representations from sections of industry calling on the Government not to proceed with the tax? Will he tell the Senate which industries are protesting and whether their arguments have merit?

Senator WRIEDT - I am not aware of specific protests having been made. Protests could have been sent to the Treasurer but I am not aware that any have come to me. If they have I shall provide the honourable senator with a list of the organisations which have lodged protests.

Senator Maunsell - And as Minister representing the Treasurer?

Senator WRIEDT - I shall put the request to the Treasurer to see whether he also is prepared to provide that information.
