Mr LISTER -I desire to ask the Minister for Trade and Customs whether there is any foundation for the statement circulated that certain wool manufacturers have made requests to himself or to the officials of the Department, to reduce, or to remove altogether, the existing duty on automatic wool-feeding machines. Is the Minister aware that there are, at least, four firms in Australia who have made, and sold at a reasonable figure, machines, which are proved to be entirely satisfactory, and will he. give his assurance that the policy of Protection to Australian industries will be closely adhered to?
