Senator DALY - The Acting Minister for Trade and Customs has supplied the following answer to the honorable senator's question: -

The tariff provides for artificial silk yarns to he admitted free of duty, if the produce or manufacture is of the United Kingdom, and to be charged duty at the rate of 10 per cent, if produced in any other country. The reason for such treatment is that such yarns are raw materials for the knitting industry, and are not made in Australia.
