Mr FORDE (CAPRICORNIA, QUEENSLAND) asked the Minister for Trade and Customs, upon notice -

1.   What were the total value and quantity of raw cotton imported to Australia during 1927-28, and what were the countries of origin of such imports?

2.   What were the total quantity and value of kapok imported to Australia during 1927-28, and what were the countries of origin of such imports ?

3.   Will the Government take early action to impose a sufficiently high duty on kapok to enable the cotton-growers of Queensland to supply raw cotton as a substitute therefor?
