The CHAIRMAN (Senator Newlands (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - The Minister (Senator Crawford) has notified his intention of submitting a request relating to sub-item d.

Senator NEEDHAM - I shall be pleased to give way to the Minister.

Senator CRAWFORD(Queensland-

Honorary Minister) [4.40]. - I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to make sub-item (d) read as follows : - " (d) Cement-making machines, n.e.i.; road-making machines, n.e.i.; stonecrushing machines; aerial ropeways, exclusive of cable; travelling and portable cranes, hand operated; coal conveyors and ash-handling plant, exclusive of motive power equipment, ad val., British, 35 per cent. ; intermediate, 45 per cent. ; general, 50 per cent."

The alteration proposed is merely to shorten the verbiage of the sub-item, to embrace all stone-crushers with jaws of any size, and to add the letters n.e.i. after " road-making machines."
