Senator FINDLEY (Victoria) (Honorary Minister) . - As I have intimated, the Government would' prefer Senator Givens'' proposal' to Senator Eynch's, but they still think that the better pl'an woul'd' be to retain the item in its present form.

Senator-Givens.- It would1 merely compel the- importers to put a useless quantity of chromium in their steel.

Senator FINDLEY - I have already pointed out that the Department has made

a.   rule- fixing 1 per cent, as the quantity of chromium to be contained in chrome steel, but that has been ineffective' in. giving such relief as was intended by the 1908 Tariff. This is purely a- Protectionist question. In order to- give further time for the consideration of the matter; I think that progress had better be reported.

Progress reported.
