Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - Two factories have been established, or are in the course of establishment, for the production of steel of the calibre indicated in Senator Lynch's request. One of these works is situated at Guildford, Western Australia; the other is in New South Wales. When they begin to produce, articles of the calibre mentioned by the honorable senator, duty will be imposed by the prescription of departmental by-laws. Meanwhile, thesespecial lines will continue to be duty free. That is fair, and in .the best interests of Australia. If the manufacturers can turn out these high-grade products with commercial satisfaction and success, protection will be afforded.
