Senator LYNCH (Western Australia) . - It is quite clear that the sums paid in bounties for coffee production did not exhaust the amount which Parliament voted for that purpose, and that

Parliament failed in its laudable endeavour to establish the coffee industry in Australia. The time has come when we should consider whether or not this duty should continue, having regard" to the fact that so far it and a respectable bounty have failed to establish the industry. If SenatorPratten does not move for the abolition of the duty upon this household commodity, I shall do so.
