Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) . - Section 1 of sub-item aa contains the objectionable phrase, "as prescribed by departmental by-laws." I again take exception to it, but perceive that it would be useless for me to request its deletion. Following the splendid display of interest shown by some honorable senators who were anxious to help British trade by injuring American trade, I now expect them to undertake to assist British trade by injuring nobody. Therefore, I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to make sub-item (aa), paragraph 2, British, free.

Request negatived.
