Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) ." - Calves are not destroyed merely for the purpose of obtaining rennet, and, as I have already explained, the work now being undertaken by the Sydney Abattoirs will be the means of providing an adequate supply. During the war period we were unable to obtain rennet, and the cheese-making industry was in consequence considerably hampered. It is very desirable that we should not be dependent upon other countries for the supply of this commodity, and as the imposition of a duty will be of assistance to the primary producers, I trust the proposed duty will be allowed to stand. I am informed that the rennet produced locally is of a highly satisfactory quality.
