Mr GLYNN - I should like to ask the Prime Minister whether it is not a fact that under the rebate system the Commonwealth lost the whole of the rebates?


Mr DEAKIN - My recollection is that the Commonwealth did not lose the whole of the rebates. They were deducted from the Excise duties, which were divided between the Commonwealth and the States in the proportion of one-fourth and threefourths respectively.


Mr Glynn - Yes ; but the amount represented by the rebates was never paid into revenue.


Mr DEAKIN - No.
