Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister for Defence) .- To a certain extent the Committee has already dealt with the subject-matter of item 159, in the course, of its- consideration of paragraph 2 of sub-item a, of item 186. The- rates of duty upon- " Wire, other," are set out' in' the schedule respectively at 52s., -728. -6d., and 90s. per ton, but the Committee has requested a reduction of the British preferential rate to 44s. The item at present under consideration is allied with that which I have just indicated, and honorable senators should not request more considerable reductions in the present instance than that which was secured in respect of sub-item b of item 186.
