Mr DEAKIN - The amount of the excise collected is very much greater than that paid by way of sugar bounties. The honorable member, however, must recollect, as we all have to do, that three-fourths' of the excise collected goes to the State in which it is collected, and that the total sugar bounties are paid out of the fourth of the Customs and Excise duties which falls to the share of the Commonwealth. We pay the whole of the bounties, but receive only one-fourth of' the Excise duties.
