Senator REID (Queensland) .- While clothing made from material similar to the samples submitted by Senator Payne may be suitable for Melbourne and Hobart, it would certainly not be suited to the warmer districts of Australia. I have here some samples of Australian-made material which is suitable for wear in any portion of Australia, including Queensland. The back of these tweeds is as good as the face, proving the high quality of the Australian-made article. Moreover, this material is obtainable in a variety of colours, patterns, and weights. . I am surprised that Senator Payne should have brought such rubbish into the chamber. The material which he exhibited would not stand a shower of rain. I trust that the Senate will agree to give a reasonable measure of protection to an Australian industry which can produce such satisfactory material as I have exhibited.
