Dr J F Cairns (LALOR, VICTORIA) (12:33 PM) - I think I should make a few comments in order to reduce the area of disagreement which might exist between the honourable member for Wakefield (Mr Kelly) and myself. I have looked at the operations of Everett Products Pty Ltd of Portland very carefully. Like the honourable member, I approve of this method of fixing the duty at 42½%. The factory is being treated as a new one. It is better equipped and more modern than the old factory. One provision is that in 1972 the duty will be reduced to 30%. I think that this is a very good principle to adopt. I think it is very satisfactory. As far as I am aware, this is the first time such a principle has been adopted.

Schedule agreed to.

Ninth Schedule.
