Senator CAVANAGH asked the Minister for Customs and Excise, upon notice:

In view of the Minister's answer to Senator Withers as to the trivial nature of offences for which customs officers are being or have been charged, is the Senate to understand that there was no neglect of duty or wrongful conduct by officers of the Department of Customs and Excise in relation to the large importation of cigarettes and tobacco and the evasion of import duties or, if breaches by officers permitting this importation were connected, that such breaches have not yet been detected or that charges have not yet been made?
