Senator LECKIE (Victoria) .- I am still worried about cores and I have been told that some manufacturers get exemptions on some of these articles, whilst others do not. I do not object to exemptions, but I think that all manufacturers should receive equal treatment.

Senator Sir GEORGEPEARCE (Western Australia - Minister for External Affairs) [4.52]. - I regret having overlooked explaining the exemption of certain jigs and dies. Motor-body builders are not competitive with any other manufacturer, and therefore, the exemption of the jigs and dies used by them does not give to them any unfair advantage since the exemption applies to all firms engaged in the industry. But their exemption in other cases might lead to unfair competition. They are consumable aids to manufacture in one industry whilst in .another industry they are not.
