Senator BLAKEY - Has the attention of the Minister representing the Minister of Trade and Customs been directed to an article which is exhibited for sale >n some of the confectioners' shops in this city? It is headed " MacRobertson " ; then there are shown the Australian flag and the Union Jack, and underneath are the words, " Patriotic prize packet for patriotic Australians." When one opens a packet he gets a little book. The one I hold in my hand is called " The Tailor's Three Sons," and it was made and printed in Germany - a patriotic prize book for patriotic Australians. Will the Government, when they are framing the Tariff, take this question into consideration so as to prevent innocent persons like myself from being exploited when they go to purchase these articles ?
