Mr FORDE (CAPRICORNIA, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Trade and Customs) - I shall have inquiries made to ascertain when the report of the Tariff Board on tobacco duties is expected, and shall let the honorable member know. It is not, usual to give assurances thai duties will not be altered. The object of referring the matter to the Tariff Board was to have a full investi gation made. When the board's report is received, it will be carefully considered by the Government before any alteration is made.
