Senator GUTHRIE (VICTORIA) . - I support" the request for several reasons. I am in favour of imposing heavy duties on all luxuries. I regard German or Austrian beer as an unnecessary luxury in- this country, as the lager beer now being manufactured here is just as good. We have been doing very well without German beer for several years, and we can very well do without it for the rest of our lives. The brewing industry, with which hop-growing is closely allied, is a valuable one to Australia.
