Senator CRAWFORD - At the instance of the Minister for Markets and Migration, the brewers of Australia are now importing not more than 15 per cent. of their requirements of hops, and are supplying the balance from hops produced in Australia. The Development and Migration Commission, in association with the Department of Agriculture, Tasmania, is now examining the general position of the hop industry in that State, which is responsible for the bulk of the production of the Commonwealth. Under the circumstances, it is not considered necessary or advisable to place an embargo on the importation of hops into Australia.
