Senator CHANEY (Leader of the Opposition) —by leave-I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That the Senate-

(a) congratulates Senator Watson for his initiative in proposing tax deductibility for costs incurred in complying with the requirements of an Australian Tax Office audit and associated responses;

(b) notes that the Government has, in the Budget, accepted the thrust of Senator Watson's bill which was passed unopposed by the Senate last period of sittings; and

(c) condemns the Government for its failure to enact this measure simultaneously with the introduction of self assessment several years ago.
