Mr SPEAKER - Order! The honorable member is ignoring what I have just said, and is violating the Standing Orders. Only those questions which relate to public business may bo asked, and they must not involve argument or the expression of opinion.

Mr RIORDAN - I ask the Minister for Trade and Customs whether it is the intention of the Government to expend the £1,000,000 that it will get from its higher tobacco duties in paying doles to the ruined tobacco-growers of the Commonwealth ?

Mr GULLETT - The change of duty recommended by the Tariff Board will not Turingin an additional £1,000,000 in revenue; it will save the Government from losing £1,000,000.
