Senator McLEAY (South Australia) . - It has been stated that the duty on unfabricated panels is fixed at 6d., in order to assist British distributors, but the distributors complain that, if the panels are brought out in an unfabricated condition, it takes nearly as long to prepare them for assembly here as it would to have the panels made in Australia. That is a serious complaint, and I should like to know if there is any ground for it. If the making of the holes, &c, in the unfabricated panels takes so long, that raises a new issue.

Senator Sir George Pearce - Why should it?

Senator McLEAY - Because it raises the questions of cost and delivery.
