Mr FLEMING asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

1.   How many applications have been received from taxpayers asking to be released from paying the land tax for the present year, owing to the severe drought suffered in so many parts of the Commonwealth?

2.   Will he instruct the Commissioner to postpone payment of the tax until these applications have been investigated by the Board provided for by section 66 of the Land Tax Assessment Act 1910-1911, as amended by section. 4 of Act No. 29, 1914?

Mr FISHER - The answers to the honorable member's questions are -

1.   Forty-seven.

2.   In all cases where a prima facie case has been made out under section 66, it is already the practice to inform taxpayers that payment of tax may be deferred, without penalty, until their cases are determined by the Board.
