That the item "Coffee . . . £2,500," be left out.

There is now a duty of 3d. per lb. on raw coffee, and of 5d. per lb. on roasted and ground coffee, which should surely give sufficient protection to all who wish to embark in the coffee industry here. At the present time the duty is equal to 60 per cent., and the production of coffee in Australia amounts to 83,632 lbs. per annum, showing, that the industry is firmly established, and that no bounty is needed to bring it into existence.
