Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - The item covers medicinal foods used for stock.

Senator GUTHRIE (VICTORIA) - Which can be made here?

SenatorRUSSELL.-Yes. It does not refer to chaff and oats and other foods of that description. The foods included in the item are by-products resulting from the treatment of grain, sometimes mixed with molasses. The importations are negligible, and have no effect upon the Australian production. No increase is contemplated in the duty. The item is not separately referred to in the export statistics. The exports for 1918-19 were valued at £13,000.
