Mr FOWLER (PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I desire to make a personal explanation with regard to a statement which appeared in this morning's Age in connexion with the Tariff Commission, and which is, for the most part, a series of misrepresentations. The freetrade members of the Commission have asked for no concessions from the protectionist members, and, so far as I am aware, have received none. Instead of the freetrade members having been engaged, as is stated, in 'giving the finishing touches to their adverse conclusions, which have been in preparation for some days past, they have been co-operating loyally with their colleagues in the preparation of the reports, and expect to continue to work in cooperation with them until their labours are finished.
