So far as I can ascertain from press reports, the Minister for Trade and Customs (Mr. Greene) agreed to place the article on the free list.

Senator Russell - Special provision is made under item 269 to put the article' referred to on the free list.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I am very glad to hear that the Government have dona this, because Black Leaf Forty is an insecticide very largely used by fruit and vegetable growers throughout Australia as a spray for the destruction of insect pests. Its inclusion in the free list will not injuriously affect any Australian industry, but will be of considerable service to fruit and vegetable growers.
