Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - Nearly all the rice imported into Australia is uncleaned, and a good deal of work is given in Australia in connexion with the cleaning of it. I will not say that it is a very important industry, but it is well established. I think we should not now remove the duty on rice and thus destroy the value of the property of those who have established the industry of cleaning rice in Australia. There is no increase proposed in the duty.
