Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) . - I think it should be as widely known as possible that this duty is a considerable reduction on those which existed before the introduction of this Tariff. In the Tariff of 1908-11, duties of 3s., 4s., and 6s. per cental .were imposed. The same duties were imposed in 1914, and now, in 1921, a duty of only 3s. per cental is imposed, whilst under sub-item a for the first time in many years uncleaned rice is admitted free.. This should meet with the approval of Senator Gardiner, and I have much pleasure in supporting the Government proposal.
