Mr BURCHELL - In connexion with a proposal that has emanated from Western Australia to use rice as food for poultry, owing to the shortage of wheat, maize, and oats. I would like to ascertain from the Minister of Trade and Customs the quantity of rice which was imported during the last twelve months, the value of the same, and the amount of duty paid ; and I would also like to know whether any step has been taken to remit the duty, or to give any rebate to the poultry growers in Western Australia in order to enable them to continue their poultry farming?
