Mr KINGSTON (SOUTH AUSTRALIA, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Trade and Customs) - The answer given last Friday was not correct; the Minister was misinformed on the subject. The answers to the honorable and learned member's questions are as follow : -

1.   The goods are found to be under detention under the practice referred to in answer to question of the honorable member on last Friday. The matter boa been wrongly omitted by the Victorian Customs office to be brought under the notice of the State Minister.

2.   It was claimed by the Victorian Customs office that the action taken was justified under the Trade Marks Act, 1890, No. 1140, section 15.

3.   The whole matter is under consideration, and it is not intended to bring the aid of the Customs to any action in aid of patentees or trade mark owners which is not required by law and which is in restraint of trade.
