Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - BROCKMAN. - Those are the duties proposed by the Government; but, if they are dealt with in the way in which we have dealt with previous items, there will be some alteration made in them. If by reducing the duties on wire netting, in accordance with Senator Lynch's request, we create what might appear to be an anomaly, we can easily correct the anomaly by reducing the duties on item 159 in proportion.

Senator Earle - We have already passed duties on wire similar to those proposed in item 159.

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - BROCKMAN. - There was a reduction of *8s. per ton agreed to on a request moved by Senator Guthrie. I shall have 'pleasure in supporting Senator Lynch's request.
