Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - This item contains a proposed addition to sub-item 1, " Apple wrapping, as prescribed by departmental by-laws." I should like to know whether " apple wrapping " is a technical term for fruit wrapping of all kinds, or if not, why wrappings for applesshould be imported free whilst wrappings for lemons, oranges, and other fruits should be dutiable? Why should the apples of Tasmania be singled out for these particularly favorable terms?
