Senator RUSSELL -One way in which to stir up the Australian 'community to-morrow would be to increase the duty on sugar. The people realize that they are making a sacrifice for the White Australia policy, and I have no doubt they would demand the cancellation of the contract if an attempt were made to force up the price of sugar. I ask Senator Crawford to withdraw the request, because the Government are sympathetic, as they have proved 'by assisting the industry in Queensland and so helping the Commonwealth as a. whole. I am sure the sugar-growers will get generous support when the. time .comes to review the whole position.
