Mr TUDOR - The honorable member has said the exportation of hides was prohibited on defence grounds: but as I understand that out of every thousand hides purchased, even of the proper weight for soles and uppers as required for defence purposes, only about 200 are found to be of any use after tanning, I shall be pleased to have an inquiry into what the honorable member asks. At present, in order to get the requisite number, the Defence Department has to purchase five times as many hides as it requires.
