Mr BRUCE - With reference to the inquiry by the honorable member for Wilmot (Mr. Atkinson), on 4th September, in regard to the size of sacks imported, I have looked into the matter, and find that importations are carefully examined by the Customs Department to ensure that sacks arriving comply with the standard. The marked absence of complaints suggests that, on the whole, the examination is satisfactory, but it has recently been stated that sacks had arrived in Tasmania which were not in accord with the standard. Instructions were, therefore, issued to the collectors of customs to pay particular attention to the matter.

Suggest corrections
