Senator COLLINGS (Queensland) . - The Opposition protests against any reduction of the duties on this item. It is a matter upon which the Opposition is qualified in a special way to speak, because all three of us represent Queensland, which is the principal sugar producing State. Supplementing the remarks just made by Senator Leckie, in respect of Australian-made machinery, I point out that the sugar mill at Tully, Queensland, is the best equipped and most efficient mill in the southern hemisphere, and, I believe, that it compares more than favorably with any sugar mill in any part of the world. All the machinery in that mill was manufactured by Walkers Limited, of Maryborough.
