Senator McLEAY (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs, upon notice -

1.   Why was the Tariff Board's report on Douglas Fir, dated 9th November, 1933, withheld until November, 1936?

2.   Why was Brereton measurement adopted in the new tariff, instead of Hoppus, the Australian standard log measurement?

3.   Is it a fact that the duty on Oregon logs in the latest tariff schedule is approximately 400 per cent, more than that recommended bv the Tairff Board?
