Dr EARLE PAGE (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The Assisitant Minister for Trade and Customs is reported in the Melbourne Argus of yesterday as having said that it was easy for me, as leader of the United Country party, to declare that Australian tobaccogrowers should he paid 5s. 2d. per lb. ; but that, when I was Federal Treasurer, he was paid only 2s. per lb. If the honorable gentleman was correctly reported, will he inform the House on what authority he made that statement, and whether all the other assertions he made on that occasion wore equally inaccurate?
