Senator MILLEN (New South . Wales) . - The Vice-President of the Executive Council has furnished us with a sufficient reason why we should support Senator Stewart's proposal. In the first place, he stated that dextrine enters largely into competition with other forms of mucilage. But the Vice-President of the Executive Council might have added that these other forms of mucilage do not meet the requirements of persons who use dextrine. Then he stated that it had not been manufactured in Australia because it was admitted free. He conveniently forgot that for some time a duty was levied upon it, and that that duty had failed to establish the industry here. To my mind, it is inadvisable to place a duty upon a raw material which is not produced locally.
