Senator LYNCH (Western Australia) . - If milling silk is used to meet the lavish requirements of those with a somewhat refined taste, I do not see why it should be admitted free of duty. I suggest that this is possibly an article on which revenue could be obtained, which is in keeping with my previous declaration that anything in the nature of a luxury or a non-essential should be heavily taxed.

Senator Crawford - Milling silk is used in flour mills, and its importation free of duty is of assistance to primary producers.

Senator LYNCH - The Minister's answer is quite satisfactory.
