Senator COLLINGS asked the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs, upon notice -

1.   Is it a fact that Australia will have to import large quantities of SouthernRhodesian tobacco to supplement the local crop in order to meet home demand this year?

2.   Is the action of a later Parliament in reducing the tariff protection affordedto tobacco during the term of the Scullin Government responsible for the inability of Australia to meet her own requirements in that commodity to-day?
