Mr MASSY-GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - In the event of the Government purchasing black-grown sugar to sell to the people of Australia, will he see that the white sugar-growers of Australia are not placed at a- disadvantage?

Mr TUDOR - The Excise and bounty on sugar having been abolished, there is now no distinction in Australia between black and white-grown sugar. The Excise and bounty were abolished by the Government of which my honorable friend was Whip.

Mr MASSY-GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question referred to importation.

Mr TUDOR - As we do not make any distinction within Australia, it would be difficult to make any outside Australia.
