Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (Western Australia) (4:41 AM) . - I should like some further information regarding this item, because it certainly seems to me, to use a colloquialism, that the proposed duty is " red hot." From 15 per cent, to 55 per cent, is a big jump, and represents the highest duty I have yet discovered so far in the Tariff.There must be some adequate explanation, but if there is not we ought to revert to the old schedule.
