Mr CHIFLEY - It is true .that representations have been made at various times regarding the payment of n subsidy on jute used in the sugar' industry. The matter was considered by myself and the late Minister for Trade and Customs, Senator Keane, and also by Cabinet. The Tariff Board had made an inquiry into the sugar industry, and had reported that, generally, the industry was in a satisfactory condition. Some time ago, Mr. Muir also made representations to me on behalf of .'the sugar-growers, and I then promised that I would ask the Minister for Trade and Customs to make a further examination of the subject with me. I propose to do that, but I am not able to make any other promise at the moment.
