Mr CLAY (ST GEORGE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to direct my question to the Treasurer. Is it a fact that donations to the Save the Children Fund and to the World Council of Churches Service to Refugees are regarded as allowable income tax deductions if made during this year, which has been named World Refugee Year? If so, should I be correct in assuming that a donation made to the Save the Children Fund for the express purpose of sponsoring a homeless child in Korea ought to be regarded as an allowable income tax deduction? Finally, will the Treasurer consider the extension of this income tax privilege in respect of this worthy cause beyond the current World Refugee Year?
