Senator E B JOHNSTON (Western Australia) (11:31 AM) . - I have several amendments to the schedule that I hope the Government will accept, particularly as they affect primary production - the mining and agricultural industries. Senator Daly is aware of the difficulties under which the mining industry is carrying on. Mines are closing down at Broken Hill and elsewhere because of the prevailing low prices for their product, and I believe that the Prime Minister (Mr. Scullin) has expressed his sympathy in the matter. I hope that the Minister will give favorable consideration to my amendment. I move -

That the following item be inserted: - " Copper sulphate."

Copper sulphate is used as a re-agent for flotation purposes in the mining industry, also for pickling wheat as a preventative against rust, and for spraying in orchards.
