Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (Western Australia) . - I agree that, in the interests of the farmers, for whom Senator Lynch speaks so eloquently, the motion submitted by the Minister (Senator E. D. Millen) should be accepted. But I should also like to remind Senator Lynch, and honorable senators generally, that it is open to this Committee to change its mind with regard to the duties that were fixed when last this matter was before this Chamber. The whole question is now open for discussion again, and the Committee may, if it think fit, make the whole of the superphosphates free.

Senator Earle - No.

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - I think I am right. I speak, of course, subject to correction from the Chair.

Senator Wilson - But the High Priest of Protection has spoken.
