3.64. Direct cause nearest to legislative intention in section 5.-
Of the various kinds of "causes" discussed above, we think that the one nearest to the legislative intention in section 5 of the Central Sales Tax Act is the direct or immediate cause1. Even that is somewhat wider than what was intended. The word "occasion" was really used in the sense of a sale which itself constitutes the import.
