Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) . - Having regard to the fact that saccharin comes into competition with sugar, I think we have reason to congratulate ourselves that those interested in the sugar industry are prepared to let us off with these light duties. It seems to me that we had better deal quickly with the item, lest the sugar people come forward with a request for a still higher duty. They naturally do not want to see on the Australian market anything that can be used as a substitute for their product.
