Mr MANNING (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - A determined effort is being made to market Australian fruits in a case known as the North West case, which has a cubic content of 46 cubic inches less than the imperial bushel. The use of such case3 is illegal in New South Wales, but not, I understand, in the other States. I should like to know from the Minister for Markets if it is legal to export fruit in cases containing less than the imperial bushel, and if it is not, whether the Minister will closely consider how that can be prevented, and issue an instruction that prosecutions shall be instituted in all instances in which it is proved that an endeavour is being made to evade the regulations issued by his department.
