Dr EARLE PAGE (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister for Trade and Customs, upon notice -

Whether, in view of the hardship imposed on the provincial press through the present method of assessing the value of newsprint for Customs purposes, the Minister would fix the home consumption price of unglazed newsprint, flat or reel, at, say, £30 per ton till local consumers are able to purchase their requirements at fair trade values, or, alternatively, a fixed duty of not more than £3 per ton?
