Senator PLAYFORD - The answer to thehonorable senator's questions is as follows : -

The suggestion is to nominate the expert of the company in a case where the factory is large and difficult of access. The expert of the Department will occasionally make a visit of inspection.

Senator Millen - Then the Government will allow certain factories to grade their own butter ?

Senator PLAYFORD - Subject to supervision.

Senator MACFARLANE - Arising out of the answer I desire to ask the Minister why he has not answeredmy third question ?

Senator PLAYFORD - When I received the reply from the Department of Trade and Customs, I noticed that the second and third questions were not answered. I was thinking of sending it back with a requestto furnish me with a definite answer to each of the questions, but afterwards I thought that possibly the honorable senator might be satisfied with the reply which had been furnished, and therefore I took the chance of giving it. I shall call special attention to the fact that the two questions have not been answered, and tell him the result of my inquiries.

Senator Guthrie - Will not the Minister tell the Senate?

Senator PLAYFORD - I shall tell the Senate if the honorable senator wishes.
