Mr SCULLIN (Yarra) .- Will the Prime Minister inform us when the debate on the tobacco duties is likely to be resumed?


Mr Lyons - When the tariff schedule is under discussion.


Mr SCULLIN - Earlier to-day I asked the Prime Minister whether the motion for the printing of the report of the Tariff Board on the tobacco industry would give Parliament a real opportunity to express its opinion on the tobacco duties. I understood that that was the object of the debate. The only way in which Parliament can express itself is by recording a vote. Two amendments to the Government's motion have been proposed, neither of which is framed in such a way as to destroy the Administration.
