Senator REID (QUEENSLAND) .- I have it on the authority of a cigarmaker of world-wide experience in the industry that if cured up to a proper standard, a result which he believes will shortly be achieved, the Queensland leaf is the best in the world. He is a mechanic in one of the local factories, who, as an unmarried man, has been round the world following his occupation in various countries. I asked him what he thought of the Queensland leaf, and he said that if it were properly cured it would be the best leaf he had ever handled. I give the Committee the information to induce honorable senators toencourage the man on the land who is engaged in the production of tobacco.
