Mr BRUCE - Mr. Layton is the editor of The Economist and a wellknown advocate of free trade. On the Economic Committee the Commonwealth is represented by Mr, F. L. MacDougall, who will certainly let the conference know that any statement contained in the report of the Tariff Board is not a statement of the policy of the Commonwealth Government. It is not necessary, however, to bring that fact under the notice of the British Government. Australia and the United Kingdom have separate representation on the Committee, and we are not concerned in what the British Government representative may say. Wo are interested, however, in letting all nations represented on the Committee understand exactly that a statement by the Tariff Board is not an expression of Government policy.
