Senator CRAWFORD (QueenslandHonorary Minister) (Honorary Minister) - It is not my intention to discuss at length the subject of timber duties which has been introduced by Senator Herbert Hays. All I can say at this juncture is that the Tariff Board's reports on the timber industry have been received by theGovernment, and are now receiving very careful consideration. Even if a decision had been reached upon this subject, I am sure honorable senators would not expect me to disclose it on a motion of this nature. I can assure honorable senators, however, that the matter is receiving the earnest and sympathetic consideration of the Government, and when a decision has been reached there will be no delay in bringing it before Parliament.
