Mr GREGORY (Swan) .- 1 am quite satisfied that every Labour member will vote for this increase of duty, because they prefer that women should have to go to the wash-tub rather than be enabled to use a washing machine. In order that some employment may be provided, all clothes washing machines for household use, whether electrically or power driven, have to carry a duty of .£3 or 25 per cent, under the British preferential tariff.

Item agreed to.

Item 174 agreed to.
