HARD TO RECONCILE,
PREMIER SAYS j

Mr Cain's proposals for decentralisation were hard to reconcile with the instruction he had received from the ALP to form a Government to introduce redistribu- tion on such a basis as would effectually place all control in the hands of city electors. Mr Cain had been strangely silent on the inequi- ties of the so-called uniform taxa- tion plan, which he had supported, and which had penalised the tax- payers of his own State to the tune of £4,000,000 per annum.
