Senator SENIOR - The Italian marble, if admitted free, will be used for tombstones as well as for 'statuary, even though there is 'a. marble in Australia equally as good.

Senator THOMAS (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Suppose the person who .wants to put up a tombstone thinks differently ?

Senator SENIOR - If he wants something very superior, let him pay for it, but do not allow the stone to come in surreptitiously, to compete with a good commercial stone. From Angaston it is possible to get pieces of marble large enough for any purpose. To reason as Senator Lynch has reasoned is to talk without a knowledge of what Australia possesses. If Senator Lynch, and others, would make themselves acquainted with what there is in Australia they would have no need for Italian marble.
