Senator SENIOR (South Australia) . - I would point out to Senator Gardiner how inconsistent is his action. Great Britain is a large importer of eggs, and not an exporter. Consequently, the honorable senator's 'proposal, if adopted, would merely serve to make the food of the working man in Great Britain dearer than it otherwise would be. As we have already allowed denatured eggs to be admitted free, according to the honorable senator's line of reasoning, we should offer a premium for their importation.
