Mr POYNTON (Grey) .- I do not rise to champion the payment of a bounty upon the production of olive oil, but I wish the Committee to be very careful in what they are doing. If we strike out the item under consideration, it will be necessary to strike out the proposals of the Government in regard to other oils. For example, I am- assured that linseed oil is used for the adulteration of olive oil. This is. a question which ought not be to hurriedlydecided merely upon the ground that the olive oil industry is paying in South Australia, because it is proposed to subsidize another industry which will detrimentally affect the olive oil industry, and which is already established. I suggest that the Minister should obtain further information before agreeing to strike out this item.

Sir William Lyne - I will not agree to strike it out.
