Thursday, 15 August 1912

Senator FINDLEY - The answer to the questions is : - 1 and 2. Since the 8th April, 1912, the Melbourne Harbor Trust has not imposed any differential charge on Australian and imported green fruits. On the date named, the Harbor Trust charges on all goods, whether Commonwealth or imported, were made uniform.

Senator CHATAWAY - Arising out of the answer, may I ask the Minister why he fixed upon the 8th April, 1912, as the date, since which no alteration has been made?

Senator FINDLEY - That is, I understand, the date on which the regulation was made.
