Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) . - Machines and films for educational purposes come in free when intended for use in schools, and I see no reason why they should not come in free for the benefit of the people in the back country. We recognise the value of the films in question for school purposes, and we say to the directors of the State schools, " You may have them free, because of their highly educational value." Why should we not deal in the same way with the man in the back country ?

Senator Pearce - We do. If a farmer wants to import films of an educational, scenic, or topical character, he may obtain them free of duty.

Senator GARDINER - That satisfies me.
