Mr. GIBSON:

This question, in almost

identical form, appeared on the order paper last week, and at that time I stated that it was impossible to answer it in its present form. The question does not yet specify the tax referred to, and I might say further that it is quite impossible to state how a tax will affect any society without knowing whether the society comes under the provisions of, or any exceptions to, the taxing act referred to.
