NOTICE.


DUTY-FREE IMPORTATION
OF GOODS.


Government has recently reviewed the
policy, set forth in the Notice dated 15th
April 1958 with regard to duty-free im-
portation of goods, which has now been
operating for two years. It has been
decided that it is necessary further to
reduce the number of such exemptions,
both because of the neea to conserve
revenue in every possible way, ani also
in view of the general state of the
economy.
The public are therefore advised that
aitnougn due regard will be paid Lo the
con .itions listed in paragraph 2 of
the Notice dated 15th April, 1958, those
conditions will not be regarded as auto-
matically qualifying for remission of
duty. Applications will continue to be
considered on their merits, but it is neces-
sary to emphasize that the number which
will be approved will be less than in the
recent past.

Clerk, Executive Council.

OBJECTS AND REASONS.


The object of this Bill is to amend the Income Tax Ordinance, 1956, in
the following respects:-
(a) by substituting the term "Commonwealth" for the terms "Empire"
and "Dominion";
(b) by granting relief to a widow or widower by way of a housekeeping
allowance in respect of a female housekeeper or nurse who is not a
relative of the taxpayer or of the deceased spouse of such taxpayer;
(c) by reproducing one of the provisions of the principal Ordinance, which
was removed by the 1957 Amending Ordinance, so as to provide that
deductions in respect of charitable contributions shall only be allowed
if such contributions-are covered by a fixed annuity or secured by
a covenant for at least five consecutive years;
(d) by placing the same limitations upon non-resident British persons and
firms as already exist on foreign persons and firms by virtue of section
29 of the principal Ordinance;
(e) by providing that relief shall only be granted in respect of Common-
wealth income tax when such tax is charged in Commonwealth coun-
tries which have the relevant reciprocal legislation;
