Senator PLAYFORD - The answer to the honorable senator's question is as follows : -

These are not Border Customs Houses in the sense they were so called before Federation. The officers at these places simply deal with imported goods which are transferred under bond, and collect statistics. They should be styled inland Customs Houses, as they have bo reference to border Customs. The old term was merely continued as a matter of convenience.
