Mr BEASLEY (WEST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Minister for Trade and Customs advise whether representatives of the Melbourne Herald were called into consultation with the Government in regard to the change in the tobacco duties, as was done in connexion with the policy that was framed at the last Premiers Conference in order to make an attack upon the Premier of New South Wales ?

Mr GULLETT - It is not the practice of the Government to call into consultation the representatives of the Melbourne Herald or of any other journal in connexion with the framing of its policy.

Mr RIORDAN - In view of recent promises made to the tobacco-growers, is it the intention of the Government to compensate them for the losses that they will incur this year on account of the changed policy of the Government?
