Mr ARCHDALE PARKHILL (WARRINGAH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Trade and Customs whether it is a fact that eight casks of cut glass stemmed blanks, valued at £202 15s. Sd., and branded C.C.G. Coy., which means the Crown Crystal Glass Company, of Sydney, were passed through the customs in August of the present year? Are not these or similar importations the blanks from which were cut the goods illustrated in the .Home Journal of the' lst October, and advertised as Grimwade crown crystal, "every piece of which is made from start to finish by Australian craftsmen at the works of the Crown Crystal Company, Sydney"? Is it not a fact that these glasses were merely finished from imported stems, and that, the advertisement of them as an entirely Australian product is misleading?
