Senator BOLTON (Victoria) . - It has been said that this duty has been imposed because there are one or two " tin-pot " industries in Victoria requiring protection. The policy Victoria has adopted in the past has made this State the most prosperous in the Commonwealth. In one factory alone 800 people are employed in producing this material; factories are also being established in New South Wales; and I understand that another establishment is being erected at Albury. The Committee should allow the duty to stand, as it will not only protect Australian manufacturers, but be the means of creating employment for our own people.
