Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - Dextrine has been dealt with in this way because all other materials of this description, such as pastes, mucilages, &c, are required to pay a duty. Dextrine is the only article of the kind which was admitted free, and it enters largely into competition with other commodities such as I have mentioned. The Government Analyst has stated that the manufacture of dextrine is a very simple matter, and that it can be easily produced iri Australia. The reason it has not been manufactured locally is that it was admitted free, and consequently large quantities of it were imported from Germany and other countries.
