Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to amend the item by leaving out the words " including silver ferruled or plated< articles" and by inserting in lieu thereof thewords " including the articles named when plated or silver ferruled."

The explanation is that the amendment is required to give effect to a promise madeby the Minister in the House of Representatives. As plated articles are dutiable under item 137 a at 30 and 25 per cent., it would be highly anomalous to admit certain plated articles under this item at 15: and 10 per cent.
