Senator THOMPSON (Queensland) . - I cannot allow the Minister to get away with the statement that the duties have been distributed. Every trader in items on which increased duty is set out in this schedule had stock in hand on the date that it came into operation, and he had no hope of distributing the extra amount. He must bear the loss. The Minister's statement is absurd.
