Senator LAWSON (Victoria) .- There is one other matter. Sheep dips, orchard sprays, and fungicide for pickling seed wheat and one or two other essentials used by primary producers were mentioned before the. luncheon adjournment. Has the Leader of the Senate obtained any information as to the amount of the gross sales of those items.

Senator Daly - We cannot obtain figures relating to those items.

SenatorLAWSON. - There was also a request to exempt imported seeds. Can the Minister say approximately what is the amount of gross sales?

Senator Daly - About £770,000, annually.
