Senator CRAWFORD (Queensland) . - If the request is adopted, I fail to see how it will be the means Of increasing the price of Australian beer. It does not offer any protection to fhe local brewer, arid; all it will do is to practically prohibit all' importations under this heading excepi from Great Britain. I cannot see any relation between the' request and Excise duties, arid if it is carried I do hot think if will fee necessary to review the Excise duties, because the position will be practically the same as at present, except that importations front certain countries will in all probability be excluded'.
