Senator KEATING (Tasmania) . - I should like to know if sub-item c, relating to apple brandy, has appeared in the schedule before. We have not before us theprevious rates of Excise for the purpose of comparison, therefore the Minister might make some explanation with regard to this particular industry, and say if any apple brandy is being produced in the Commonwealth, and, if so, where, and to what extent, as well as the demand or consumption in the Commonwealth. It struck me that it might be established in an apple State, and that the Excise duty might operate in such a State as it does in vine-growing States.
