Senator FOLL (QUEENSLAND) asked the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs, upon notice -

1.   Is it a fact that a proclamation was gazetted on the 27th February, 1919, setting forth that it -was desirable to prohibit the importation, unless with consent, of dyes other than those of British origin, and therefore prohibiting the importation into Australia of such dyes unless the consent in writing of the Minister of State for Trade and Customs had first been obtained?

2.   If so, is this proclamation still operative ?

3.   Will the Minister make available the regulations governing the administration of the licensing law in Great Britain, which regulations have been referred to in previous answers as governing the Australian practice?

4.   Will the Minister make available the regulations governing the administration of the law promulgated by the proclamation referred to above?

5.   Will the Minister arrange that the officers of his department satisfy themselves that the dyes imported under licence conform with the actual dye-stuffs licensed to be imported?

6.   Is the quantity of any foreign dye-stuff licensed to be imported restricted to the same quantity as is licensed into England?

7.   Will the Minister regulate that, as in Britain in special and appropriate circumstances, the application for a licence be made by, and granted to, the actual user of the dye-stuff, and that the user shall be bound not to sell the same?

8.   Will the Minister cause inquiry to be made as to the applicability to foreign dyestuffs of the dumping clauses of theCustoms Acts?
