Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I direct attention to sub-clause 2, and suggest that the authority toregister should not be optional. The clause gives the Commissioner power to register the default of one landowner in regard to land tax, but not of another. The discretion is rather invidious. If it be desirable to register any land-owner as being in default, the condition should apply to all. There does not seem to be any justification for picking any one man out, and for saying that the Commissioner may register that John Smith is in default, whilst he does not register that William Brown is. also in default.

Suggest corrections
