Mr SCULLY - I say most emphatically that if the procedure outlined in the honorable gentleman's question has been adopted it is quite improper. No levy is imposed upon rabbit skins until they are at the point of export. Babbit skins are selling at phenomenal prices. At recent sales the price of 290d. per lb. was paid for first-grade skins. If those skins were for export a levy of ls. 6d. per lb. would have to be paid by .the exporter. Any person who acts in the manner implied in the question is fleecing the rabbit-trappers.
