Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - There are several activities, in various parts of Australia, which will derive protection from the ratesjust quoted. There is one, for example, at Clunes, in this State, where cotton mills are producing goods in a kind of tubular mould. Where knitted cotton goods in tubular form are imported from Britain for use in wrapping meat, no duty is imposed. But with respect to tubular goods made for "other" purposes - namely, for wearing apparel- the ad valorem rates of 20, 30, and 35 per cent. will be imposed.
