That the House of Representatives be requested to amend the item to read - 109 (a) Artificial flowers n.e.i.,. artificial plants, fruits, leaves, and grains of all kinds and materials, ad val., British,30 per cent.; intermediate, 35 per cent.; general, 40 per cent.

(b)   Artificial flowers in. spray, trails, or posies, per dozensprays, trails, or posics, British; 48.; intermediate, 4s.6d.; general,5s; or, ad vat, British, 30 per. cent; intermediate, 35 per cent: ; general, 40 per cent., whichever rate returns the higher duty.

Artificial flowers are seasonable goods in other countries, and, as a consequence, there is a. certain amount of seasonal dumping which prejudicially affects the local industry. This requested amendment satisfies those engaged in the trade here, and it is believed that it will accomplish the object of the Department.
