The PRESIDENT - The honorable senator is going a little beyond the limits of a personal explanation.

Senator LYNCH - I will conclude by remarking that the Tariff which was dealt with by this Parliament in 1907-8 included, as an integral part, a 5 per cent, preference to British manufacturers. That Tariff I supported. Senator Millen did not support it, neither did Senator

Gould, and the basis of my charge against them was that while the Tariff was being debated, they helped the side of the importing countries, including Germany, whereas my action was in the direction of encouraging Australia, on the ground that we can produce here the articles that we require.
