Senator FOLL (Queensland) .- Senator Payne'ssuggestion is a fair one. The Minister stated that it would be impossible to administer such a provision and to control the quantity of silk used in an article of this description. Surely the department can suggest a means for getting over the difficulty J The silk used in this garment consists merely of a little trimming; it plays no part in the material from which the garment is manufactured. This matter may have escaped the notice of the Customs Department. If Senator Payne's proposal does not meet the case will the Minister submit one that will?
