Senator ELLIOTT (Victoria) .- I should like to hear the Minister's views regarding the repeal of these duties. Is it because no progress is being made in the manufacture of these goods.

Senator CRAWFORD(QueenslandHonorary Minister) f2.52].- The import duty on carpets which was previously in operation was practically a revenue duty. The only factory operating in Australia is that referred to by Senator Duncan. Attempts have been made to form other companies for the manufacture of these goods, but without success. This company has been operating for about three years.

Senator Needham - What amount of revenue did the duty produce?
