Mrs BLACKBURN (Bourke) .- The platform of the Federal Labour party, under the heading " Progressive Reforms " and the sub-heading " Taxation and Finance ", requires that sales tax. should be abolished as soon as possible. Can the Minister for Post-war Reconstruction (Mr. Dedman) inform the House when that may be expected to occur?
