INCOME TAX

REQUEST FOR EXTENSION OF TIME OF FILING FINAL RETURN


On the orders of the day:


NAT

Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Leader of the Opposition):

Before the orders of the day are called I should like to direct a question to the Minister of National Revenue. I have not been able to give the minister notice of the question, but I believe he already has notice of it. It comes from the Retail Merchants' Association of Canada, by whom the suggestion is made, that, because of the scarcity of accountants and auditors, the time for filing the 1943 income tax returns be delayed for a matter of, I believe, two months. May I ask the minister what consideration is being given this request, and whether there are any reasons why it might not be granted?
