Senator DEVITT - I address my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Tourism and Recreation or whoever is the appropriate Minister. Does he appreciate that sales tax at the rate of 15 per cent currently applies to all forms of life saving equipment used on small boats? In view of the growing use of small boats, especially by inexperienced operators, coupled with the disincentive as a consequence of cost which is accentuated by the tax factor, will he ask his colleague the Treasurer to earnestly consider removing the sales tax on all life saving aids which should be carried on small craft?

Senator WILLESEE - I ask that the question be put on notice.
