The CHAIRMAN - Senator Symon, when introducing his amendment, referred to the _ reports of the Agents-General as containing reasons why the amendment should be passed, and I take it that Senator Stewart is replying.

Senator STEWART - The 'AgentGeneral for Queensland1, Sir Horace Tozer, stated in the press that ^40,000,000 of capital was being kept from investment in

Australia, because of our restrictive legislation; but when he was brought to book for the assertion, the amount dwindled, I suppose, to about £40: An AgentGeneral capable of making an assertion of the kind, which he cannot substantiate, is not worthy of much confidence, and his opinion ought not to have much influence within this Chamber.
