Senator CRAWFORD (Queensland) (Honorary Minister) - I am prepared to accept the request moved by Senator Duncan. It refers only to carpets, carpeting, floor rugs, and carriage mats - not exceeding 36 inches in width - of wool, jute, or any other textile material, excepting coir, carpet felt, and under-carpet felt. This duty will assist the carpet manufacturing industry to a limited extent only at present; but it may prove to be the foundation of a much larger industry in the future, providing an additional local market for wool and other Australian raw materials.
