Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - The honorable senator must have a very poor opinion of the Australian people' if he believes that we cannot make fly papers here as well as they can be made elsewhere. When I inform1 him that the paper of which fly papers are made is admitted free, he will understand that there can be no complaint about a duty on the raw material of the industry. It must be patent to every intelligent member of the Committee that fly papers manufactured on the spot, and used in their pristine vigour, mast be better than fly papers which have been imported, and which cannot be so fresh when they are used.
