Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) . - Although these duties are very high, the Committee was rightly reminded by Senator de Largie, on the previous item, that the consumers do not pay them. They certainly do nob pay the duties in this case, because, I am pleased to say, during the last year or two the export of Australian-made boots and shoes has increased to a very considerable extent. I believe that that increase will continue as a result of the high development of the industry here.
