Dr EARLE PAGE (Cowper) . - I wish to understand exactly what is proposed to be done. It was my belief that the tobaccoduties were to be discussed to-day in. order that a decision might be arrived at, regarding them. I understood that that was why the Government acceded to the request that an opportunity should be afforded for debating the Tariff Board's report. Has the Government finally made up its mind on the matter of the tobacco duties, or will it allow itself to be influenced by representations made here to-day? I can understand no vote being taken if the Government's mind is still open. In that case its attitude is quite logical, but if the Government has finally made up its mind it should allow Parliament to vote on the matter.

Suggest corrections
