Mir.. RIORDAN. - Has the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs seen the statement in Monday's newspapers that Can-eras Limited, tobacco manufacturers, are paying a dividend of 45 per cent., and can Tie state whether that is an indication either that the consumer is paying too much for his tobacco or that, the producer is receiving too little for his leaf? Will the Minister have these outrageous profits investigated with a view to increasing the price to the grower, or reducing the price to the consumer, or both?
