Senator NEEDHAM (Western Australia) .- If the committee agrees to the postponement of this item, I trust the honorary Minister (Senator Crawford), who has expressed some sympathy towards the request, will not allow his interest to wane during the period of postponement. The case submitted by Senator Payne is worthy of favorable consideration, as I understand that if the industry, which has been in existence for about two years, is forced out of business, about 400 workers who are directly and indirectly employed by it, will be added to the already large army of unemployed, and a large amount of -capital will also be rendered idle.

Item postponed.

Item 113 agreed to.

Item 115 (Socks and stockings).
