Senator McLEAY (South Australia) . - I do not wish to be misunderstood on this matter. In spite of the fact that under the British preferential tariff no duty is imposed on this item, the industry has not been affected.

Senator Brown - But it may yet be affected.

Senator McLEAY - Figures on that matter can be supplied by the Department of Trade and Customs. I point out that if we can reduce the price of biscuits, the consumption and production will increase, and this will further assist the primary producers. Consequently, all sections interested in the industry will benefit.

Item agreed to.
