Mr GREGORY (Swan) .- When does the Minister propose to bring Tariff Schedule No. 7 before Parliament to enable it to be dealt with item by item? A few years ago the Customs Tariff Act was amended to provide that no tariff schedule would become operative unless it was approved by Parliament within six months from the date it was tabled. The Government has been getting over that amendment by unfair and unjust methods.

Mr JOHN LAWSON (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I cannot name any specific date on which I shall he able to introduce that schedule, but I assure the honorable member it will be introduced without avoidable delay.

Bill agreed to, and reported from committee without amendment; report adopted.

Bill read a third time.
