Senator SENIOR (South Australia) . - After seeing what is being done by the company to which I refer, working under comparatively crude methods, I realize that this is an opportunity to encourage the development of an important industry. Therefore, I feel inclined to press my request. I omitted to mention that the clay produces an exceedingly fine white tile. Other deposits produce a tile which, when burnt, is creamy incolour; but the tile produced from this particular deposit is pure white, and the kalsomine paint will stand every test. I saw a sheet of galvanized iron which had been painted with it and exposed to the sun's rays and other weather conditions for nine months, and then the colour was as! bright as when first put on. This Tariff is framed for the purpose of encouraging Australian industries, and I ask honorable senators to support my request.

Request negatived.
