Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) - I move-

That the words " after the thirtieth day of June but," lines 5 and 6, be left out.

The purpose of the clause is to determine the date of ownership of land for the purposes of taxation. Having provided for that, the clause goes on to say that where an owner has sold, or agreed to sell, or conveyed part of his land, between the 30th June and the 30th September, he shall be charged with land tax as if the land were owned by him. I wish to make it perfectly clear that any person who has agreed to sell his land before the 30th September shall be entitled to the benefits conferred by the clause.
