Senator CRAWFORD (QueenslandHonorary Minister) . - The value of the tractors manufactured last year, and on which bounty was paid; was between £4,000 and £5,000. The object of the bill now before the Senate is to encourage the local manufacture of tractors, which up to the present has scarcely passed the experimental stage. It is believed that by the encouragement that will be afforded by this bill the manufacture of tractors suitable to Australian conditions will be carried on in a fairly extensive way. There is one factory which is particularly well equipped for the manufacture of tractors, and which should benefit considerably by this bounty.
