Mr THOMAS (BARRIER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the Minister of Trade and Customs the following questions: -

1.   Was Sir William Lyne at Ballarat on Fridaylast addressing a political meeting in connexion with Mr. Charles Atkins?

2.   Is this the Mr. Charles Atkins who is the accredited protectionist candidate for the Senate?

3.   Is this the same Mr. Atkins who, when President of the Victorian Chamber of Manufactures, stated that " The Labour Party should be made thoroughly to understand that the manufacturers had no intention of selling themselves in any way for Tariff purposes, and his advice to them was' to fight for the Tariff and freedom of contract.' "

4.   Does Sir William Lyne indorse that doctrine, and does he think that a person who advocates freedom of contract is a fit and proper person with whom to hold political meetings?
