Mr GREGORY (SWAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I have received from the wheat pool of Western Australia a letter stating that it is difficult to do business in Australian flour in Palestine because of the increase of the import duty, which now amounts to £5 10s. sterling a ton, whereas the duty on Canadian flour is only £2 sterling a ton. Is the Minister for Commerce aware as to whether or not that is correct? If it is correct, is itposible for action to be taken with a view to placing Australia on the same business basis as Canada in this matter?
