Would Child Endowment Be a Benefit? [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 31 January 1941
Would Child Endowment Be a Benefit? jP^BSPITE the bitter reply of the Minister . for Labor ! and National Services (Mr. Holt) to the attack by the secretary of the N.S.W. Taxpayers' Association (Mr. 1 White), on the Government's Family Endowment Scheme, a ? satisfactory reply to this criticism has not yet been forth- ' . coming. Mr. White in* his attack on the scheme made many points that are both logical and commonsense. In principal and on the surface, the scheme appears to be a great social reform, and a definite assistance to the man with a family. But is this so ? Mr. White points out the first effect of the scheme would be to bring into the tax paying groups, thousands of workers who are not at present taxable, because of the decision to disallow the £50 deduction for each chiid. To this Mr. Holt might have replied that although a man with three children does not receive the reduction of £150, the actual taxation on his income does not equal the amount of child endowment he wo...

The armed forces are doing their duty nobly and well, our workshops are turning out armaments and other war material on schedule, but what of the primary producer ? It is all very well far our High Commissioner to ask the primary producers to give of their best, but where are they to find markets for their commodities? Well might the primary producers turn to Mr. Bruce and ask him to use his endeavors to obtain a share of contracts from Britain. ? Other countries and Domi...

A FEW GOOD SEASONS FORECAST The following seasonal forecasting is issued exclusively to 'The Albury Banner' by Mr. Inigo Jones, F.R.A.S., F.R.Met.Soc., Crohamhurst Observatory, dated January 24, 1941: The monsoonal rains in the western country due under the cycle for this part of the, month seem to be developing in order and rain is to be expected from them, although there is no re cord to show just what may be expected at Albury.
