Senator FINDLEY (Victoria) . - I trust that the Minister will give an explanation in regard to the matter that has been raised by Senator Payne.

Senator Crawford - They are being made here.

Senator Payne - I said that some may be made, but in small quantities.

Senator FINDLEY - Some are being made at a factory which the honorable senator visited.

Senator Drake-Brockman - In 1921.

Senator FINDLEY - Are we to understand that all the ribbons which come under this item are being made in Australia to-day?
