Senator CHAPMAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Is the Minister representing the Minister for Trade and Customs aware that one of the largest firms in Adelaide has notified at least one of its clients as follows : -

Asthe Federal Government has recently increased the customs duties on cornsacks from 2½ per cent. to 4 per cent, we have to advise that, under the authority of the Customs Act, we will be obliged to pass this additional duty on to you. Will you, therefore, please note that your contract with us for the supply of cornsacks this season will be at the contract price, plus the additional duty, which is1½d. per dozen.

Will the Minister have inquiries made?
