Mr HAROLD HOLT - The honorable member is aware, no doubt, that the dried fruits to which he refers represent important ingredients in the manufacture of quite a number of commodities which are subject to sales tax. Cakes and buns are two notable examples of the kind of products to which I refer. For this reason, the adoption of the honorable member's suggestion would have a considerable impact upon the revenue. I can assure him, however, that what he has put forward will not be overlooked. The honorable gentleman can be assured that the powerful representations he has made, with his persuasive advocacy, in the interests of this important industry will be fully weighed.
