Mr GREGORY (SWAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I have to-day received a telegram from a well-known trader in Perth to tlie effect that Lysaghts Limited has refused to supply him with galvanized iron, and he desires an adjustment of duties' to enable importations to be made. I understand that the Minister has received a similar telegram. I should like to know whether, in view of the fact that Lysaghts Limited are refusing to supply firms outside the association, he will at once carry out the policy which he enunciated when a member of the Opposition, and remove the embargoes and duties so as to allow people to buy imported .galvanized iron at a price two and a half times less than that at which it can be purchased here?
