Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - Getting back to my interrupted statement, I -was pointing out that there is some misconception as to the functions and powers of the proposed Tariff Board and the Bureau of Commerce and Industry. The powers of the proposed Tariff Board will have direct relation to the Tariff. The functions of the Bureau of Commerce and Industry are quite distinct. Some honorable senators are, apparently, ready to criticise without examination die work done by different Commonwealth organizations, and I gladly extend to them an invitation to visit the offices of the Bureau of Commerce and Industry and become familiar, with the task in which it is engaged.
