Mr Charles Jones asked the Minister for Shipping and Transport, upon notice:

(1)   Can he say what taxes are collected by each State from

(a)   the road transport industry, and

(b)   motorists.

(2)   Can he say what sums were collected by each State for each of the last S years for which statistics are available and what was the cost of administering those taxes.

Mr Sinclair - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The member's attention is drawn to the mimeographed publication "Commonwealth, State and Territory Taxation Collections 1968-69', reference number 5.30, issued by the Commonwealth Statistician on 23rd January 1970. (-lis attention is drawn specifically to Tables 4, 5 and 6. Table 4 relates to Slate Government taxation collections; Table 6 relates to Local Government authorities taxation collections; and Table 5 relates to taxes collected by other Govemmental authorities in the States.

It is not feasible to ascertain the cost of administering particular State taxes.
