Mr HUTCHINSON (DEAKIN, VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Treasurer relating to deductions for income tax purposes of allowances for " found " employees. Arbitration Court awards allow an amount of from 30s. a week upwards as the value of keep for an employee. For income tax purposes that amount is added to a " found " employee's wages ; but the employer is allowed a deduction in respect of such employees of only 15s., the amount fixed about 40 years ago, which is out of proportion to present costs.
