§ 17. Mr. H. WILLIAMS
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether, in view of the great interest taken in the question of State trading, he will obtain from His Majesty's Trade Commissioner in Australia a report showing the results of the extensive experiments in State trading which have been carried out in Queensland?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Burton Chadwick)
I understand that the Report on State Enterprises in Queensland for the year ended 30th June, 1926, and the Report by the Auditor-General on the Acounts of State Enterprises for the same period, issued by the Queensland Government, can be seen in the Library of the Dominions Office, and my hon. Friend may like to refer to them there.
Mr. A. HOPKINSON
Would it be possible to add to that report an explanation of the intimate relationship of State Socialism and protective tariffs in Australia?
