Senator DUNCAN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I should like to obtain information regarding the stationery and materials supplied to Senate Committees. I am a member of a Select Committee of the Senate which sat today. I notice that the lead pencils supplied to the whole of these Committees are called " the Iron Duke," and are made in Japan. Is it not possible to observe the spirit of the White Australia principle, which wehave so often indorsed, and to obtain, for the use of honorable members of the Senate at any Tate, lead pencils which are made by white labour?
