Mr FORDE (Capricornia) .- I should like some indication from the Minister for Trade and Customs (Mr. Perkins) as to when the act will be proclaimed.I have no doubt that his intention in regard to the matter is quite good, but I am also mindful of the fact that he is not a member of the inner group of the Cabinet, which determines matters of policy. Although he as Minis ter for Trade and Customs may enthusiastically support the immediate proclamation of the act, he may be overridden by the inner group, two members of which are Country party members who do not believe in protection.

Mr Perkins - This legislation will be brought into operation at the earliest possible moment.

Clause agreed to.

Clauses 3 to 6 agreed to.

Clause 7 -

The bounty under this act shall be payable on the production of goods which have been manufactured in a factory in accordance with the prescribed conditions during the period of bounty specified in the schedule.

Amendment (by Mr. Perkins) agreed to-

That after the word " production," the words "during the period of bounty specified in the schedule," be inserted.
