Senator BAKHAP (TASMANIA) - To do so the honorable senator will have to study the language for a year or two longer than he has studied the fruit industry.

Senator Ready - It is well to understand a classical language.

Senator BAKHAP - It is a classical language, and was considered so 3,000 or 4,000 years ago. I think that when a public man deems an inquiry necessary he may legitimately ask for it without attacking and imputing improper motives to men who cannot come into this Chamber to defend themselves. Henry Jones went to America for the purpose of trying to cultivate a taste in the American people for Tasmanian jams rather than for canned fruit.
