Senator CRAWFORD (QueenslandHonorary Minister) . - I ask honorable senators not to support the request moved by Senator Chapman, because a reduced flat rate of duty would be insufficient to adequately protect those engaged in the manufacture of this class of goods. As previously stated, there is not likely to be any increase in the retail price of the socks and stockings mentioned in this item. Owing to internal competition, prices are likely to remain as they are, and may even be reduced.
