Senator E B JOHNSTON (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) asked the

Minister representing the Minister for Trade and- Customs, upon notice -

1.   Is the primage duty of 21/2 per cent. being charged on cornsacks, wool-packs, and other jute goods imported into Australia?

2.   Is it a fact that these jute goods are largely used for export products, and that the wheat and wool industries will be unable to bear the additional burden imposed by the above duty?

3.   Will the Government exempt jute goods from the operation of this new tax?
