Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) .- I shallbe glad if the Minister can give the Committee some information concerning the oils that are included in this item.

Senator Pearce - I cannot give the names of the different oils, but they have to be cleared at the Customs as medicines. The item includes cod liver oil, and such oils.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - It appears to me that, under the previous item, medicinal oils in bulk are admitted at a lower rate than such oils imported in the bottle.

Senator Pearce - That is so, the object being to encourage the bottling here.

Item agreed to.
