Thursday, 1 September 1921

Senator GUTHRIE (VICTORIA) . - I am in favour of the duties proposed by Senator Glasgow. According to the schedule, on and after the 8th July, 1921, the intermediate and general rates were reduced, but not the British, and on and after the 1st January, 1923, the duties originally submitted will be imposed. This industry is established in Australia, and although the manufacturers are not making the whole of the component parts of cartridges, they are using Australian shot and employing Australian labour, and if the industry is given the necessary encouragement, the manufacturers intend to produce complete cartridges. The general tenor of the debates in this Chamber has been in favour of Australian manufacturers meeting the whole of our requirements, and if that is to be done adequate protection should be afforded.
