Senator SENIOR (South Australia) . - Fuller's earth, which is made from kaolin, is being produced in several States, and I think we should give the industry a little more encouragement. I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to make the duty, sub-item (b), general, per cwt., 2s.

By increasing the duty from1s. 3d. to 2s per cwt., we shall give encouragement to. the industry, and at the same time will not add to the cost to the consumer. I had occasion, in connexion with an earlier item, to refer to the many products of kaolin clay. Fuller's earth and French chalk are among the number, and I hope my request will be agreed to.
