Mr ARCHDALE PARKHILL (Warringah) . - TheSydney Chamber of Commerce has been unanimous in its request for this reform, and recently a conference of business organizations asked that it be brought about. The change would mean merely that, when a ship arrives at the first Australian port of call, the duty on the goods it carries shall be fixed as from that time, and shall be the same at all ports. I cannot accept the arguments of the Minister, and I strongly support the proposal of the honorable member for Brisbane (Mr. D. Cameron).

Proposed new clause negatived.

Title agreed to.

Bill reported without amendment; report adopted.

Mr Forde - I ask for leave to move that the bill be read a third time.

Mr Gabb - I object.

Standing Orders suspended and bill read a third time.
