Senator GUTHRIE (VICTORIA) . - Believing, as I do, in Australian goods for Australian people, and knowing that the candle-manufacturing industry employs about 1,000 of our people under good conditions, and makes use of some raw products of Australia, such as tallow, it was my intention at this, stage to move for an increase in the duties on candles. But I think it would be far better if Senator Russell would agree to defer the consideration of this item until after we have dealtwith the duties to be imposed on wax.
