Mr CARR: My question without notice is directed to the Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Ethnic Affairs. Have State Treasury officers assisting the Special Premiers Conference produced a plan for a State income tax to be considered at the November Special Premiers Conference? Is it the intention of the Premier to vote in favour of the State income tax at that forum or will he join me in saying, as Neville Wran said in 1978, "I won't have a bar of double taxation"?

Mr GREINER: The answer to the first part of the question is no; and there will be no State income taxes.
