Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) (1:53 AM) . -Iam not questioning Senator Payne's consistency or sincerity; but as all legislation is a matter of compromise, no one legislator has the right to say, "I intend to have this schedule amended to suit the consistent attitude I have adopted." Legislation is not framed in that way. I have always favoured free importation of British products, and if the honorable senator calls for a division, I shall for the first time be found voting for a higher duty.
