Mr POLLARD (BALLAARAT, VICTORIA) (Minister for Commerce and Agriculture) - .Some of the statements that the honorable member has made are, I understand, correct, but I would not agree that others are correct. I understand that flax manufacturers allege that they are unable to compete with imported flax products such as canvas and hose. In fact, they now have an application before the Tariff Board for additional protection for the industry. I shall obtain additional information and furnish it to the honorable member.

Suggest corrections
