Mr KELLY - Will the Minister of Trade and Customs say whether, in his reference to the abolition by the previous Government of the Excise and bounty on sugar, he intended to convey a desire to dissociate himself and the present Government from that action; if so, does he propose to reimpose the duties of Excise and the bounty ?

Mr TUDOR - If the Government had any intention of reimposing any duty they would not be so unwise as to give notice of the fact. There is no differentiation in Australia between sugar grown by black and white labour, and the action which the previous Government took, would, I believe, be taken by any other Government.
