Senator DUNCAN (New South Wales) . - Senator Lynch appears to be labouring under a misapprehension.He stated that the firms engaged in rolling bars and rods from ingots and blooms are the same firms which produce the pig iron. That is not the case. I have been interviewed by several Melbourne manufacturers whose foundries are . engaged in rolling the more or less raw material obtained from Newcastle or 'Lithgow. There are other such activities in different parts of. the Commonwealth. Senator Lynch now proposes to interfere, not so much with the Broken Hill Proprietary 'Company's . works and those of Hoskins Limited, 'but with a number of smaller enterprises -whose proprietors 'draw from those works to carry onvery necessary work, andwho, inso doing, are employing a good deal of labour.
