Senator SENIOR (South Australia) .- The Minister says that Horlick's malted milk is not suitable for children, and he gives that as a reason why a duly should be imposed upon it. His previous argument in support of the duty was that a similar article was being manufactured in Australia.

Senator Russell - The condition to which I referred applies to all the malted milks.

Senator SENIOR - Here is an article which for forty years has been in the market, and which has the imprimatur of doctors all over the world as suitable for infants. This is absolutely the first time in its history that it is suggested that it is not suitable for infants. The Minister has been arguing in support of the duty that Horlick's malted milk is exactly similar to an article produced in Australia, so that he now confesses that the article made in Australia is not suitable for infants. There should be duties imposed upon all of these goods or upon none. The Government should not select one and make it dutiable.
