Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) .- I wish to know why there is no differentiation in the duties upon sweetened and unsweetened milk. The previous Tariff imposed a preferential duty upon sweet ened milk of1½d. per lb., and a general duty of 2d. The duties upon unsweetened milk were, respectively,1d. and lid. What has influenced the Government in making the duties upon each variety the same, namely, 2d. preferential and 3d. general?
