Senator LECKIE (Victoria) .- I am glad to have heard the Minister's statement on this matter. When these goods were all imported, the prices were high. Immediately the Australian industry was established, the prices were reduced, and have been gradually falling ever since. It seems to me that, if the local industry is crushed, the importers will have the prices in their own hands again. I urge honorable senators to realize the value of the local industry.

Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - The matter will be carefully watched. The trade itself is satisfied with the position.
