Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) . - In case I should be found voting against the request, I want to explain that it will not be because I have gone over to the Protectionists, but because I can see so very little possibility of advantage to the farmers by the difference in the British Tariff between the 15 per cent. proposed by Senator Wilson and the 22½ per cent. proposed by the Government. In view of these facts, I am inclined to support the Government on this item. .
