Mr PRICE (Boothby) (6:40 AM) .I notice that the Acting Minister for Trade and Customs (Mr. Perkins) is not present.

Mr Thorby - I am representing the Acting Minister.

Mr PRICE - Recently the Acting Minister gave an undertaking to a number of honorable members that he would make inquiries with a view to ascertaining whether the existing duty on Douglas fir was too high and I am anxious to know the result of that investigation, in connexion with which, I understand, a departmental officer visited Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. Has his report yet been presented to the Minister? I should be very pleased to hear at an early date that the Government has decided to reduce the import duty onoregon logs.
