Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) .. - I have anticipated that the debate upon the duties in connexion with woollen goods and materials would be the most interesting of all. The Senate meets tomorrow at 11 a.m.; this is not a good night for a prolonged sitting. I support the request that progress be reported, in order that honorable senators may come to-morrow with refreshed minds to deal with sub-item f. The Government will find that no time has been lost. It is my purpose to contribute to the debate, but I shall not have a great deal to say upon much else in the Tariff. Much important information will be provided for honorable senators and the country in the course of the consideration of the imposts upon woollen goods. I understand that the Government are about to propose that the Senate shall sit for considerably longer hours next week and thereafter. Any such proposition will have my support; but my desire for an adjournment at this stage is due to the importance of the matter under discussion. Honorable senators should be able to bring alert minds to its consideration.
