Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - The position is very plain, and is indicated by the Constitution itself. No alterationof the schedule to the Customs Tariff Bill which the Senate may request can be operative until it is accepted^ by the House of Representatives. We do not alter the duties set out in the schedule. They will continue to be collected, as they have been for some time. Any action we take here is in the nature of a request to the . other House to make alterations, and until the other House sees fit to accede to our requests the duties set out in the schedule to the Bill will continue to be collected.
