Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) . - Mr. James Cameron, representative in London of the Victorian Butter Factories Association, says -

The price of good imported foreign rennet is fully 10s. per gallon cheaper, and almost twice the strength of the local manufacture. The latter can be proved by evidence of the principal manufacturers of cheese. Even if the locally-manufactured article could be made of the same strength there is not anything like enough to supply the requirements.

Senator Russell - I admit that in the past the supply has been inadequate, but arrangements nave now been made to meet the demand.

Item agreed to.

(b)   N.E.I., including rice meal and rice flour per cental, British, 3s.; intermediate, 3s.; general, 3s.
