Mr BUCHANAN (MCMILLAN, VICTORIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister representing the Minister for Customs and Excise. As imported stocks of paper and paperboards are building up at the rate of 50,000 tons a year, their present value now being £5,000,000, and this being nearly four times the rate at which stocks were built up in the year 1959-60, and as a large part of these imports are being brought in at dumping prices, can the Minister tell me when action can be expected as a result of representations made to him by Austraiian Paper Manufacturers Limited in August, 1960, backed up by prima facie evidence, and as a result also of a request for immediate imposition of duty penalties, which was made on 29th December last? I may add that these dumped imports are still arriving in large quantities.
