Sir WILLIAM LYNE (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) - I do not know that anyone is specially to blame. The Acting Collector there applied to the Crown Solicitor of South Australia without consulting the Comptroller-General of Customs, and acted upon the advice which he received. If any bungling has occurred, it has happened in that way. The matter, however, will not rest where it now stands. Very extensive additional information has been received affecting money matters, and I believe that there will be further prosecutions.
