Mr HUTCHINSON (DEAKIN, VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Treasurer. I understand that concrete mixers and brick moulds are exempt from sales tax provided the purchasers certify that they are for use exclusively by a builder or contractor for making concrete for re-sale; or for a primary producer for mixing concrete for work not of a domestic nature. However, if a man purchases a concrete mixer or brick mould for the purpose of building his own house he is compelled to pay sales tax. Will the Treasurer look into this anomaly with a view to granting exemption from sales tax on the items mentioned when purchased by a person for the purpose of building his own home?
