Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) (12:19 PM) . - I submitted the request merely because the duty is double what it was in the previous Tariff. The Minister (Senator

E.   D. Millen) has explained that the duty proposed is in conformity with the recommendations of the Inter-State Commission. In view of the Inter-State Commission's report, I am prepared to accept the Minister's suggestion, and with the permission of the Committee will amend my request by substituting 25 per cent. for 20 per cent. My desire is to give the British manufacturer a wider margin of preference without imposing a higher duty under the general Tariff.

Request, by leave, amended accordingly.
