THE LAST STRAWS (To the Editor "Advocate") [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 24 April 1928

THE LAST STRAWS (To llie Editor ."Advocate") Sir,—The SI at o Government is go ing to find work for the-unemployed of Sydney by building railways—with Australian ra-'is. The prices of rails are as follows:- 901b rails, Broken ■Hill Proprietory, £12/2/6. per ton, British,'.£7/16/0, German £5/15/0, at Spences Street. A line, of 20 .miles laid with Broken Hill , Proprietory rails, for rails alone would cost £34,296 with British £21,921, and German £16,264..Where 20 miles could be laid with Australian rails, ;we could lay 31 miles with British or 42 miles with Herman, for the same money. This is one of the little anomalies made possible by. the Tariff, a corollary of which is "preference to Australian made." A saving of £1S,0.00 in 20 miles would look good to a private contrac tor. but then, there are no lobbyists wi'h private contractors. . ; Clause 90 of the. Federal Constitu ition reads.-- "The Commonwealth shall not by any law or regulation cf trade, commerce, or revenue, give prefe...
