Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) . - I have already demonstrated the iniquity of the additional imposition of 7½ per cent. on these people, and I should not be doing my duty if I did not make an attempt to have the rate reduced. I am aware that the Government needs money, but it does not appear to me to be right to victimize the section of the community for which I have been fighting during the discussion of this hill. In an endeavour to grant them some relief, I move -

That the House ofRepresentatives be requested to amend sub-section 1, proposed new section 7a, by leaving out the words " seven and one-half " with a view to insert in lieu thereof the word " five ".

I think that the Minister might well acceptthat request for submission to anotherplace.
