Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) .-I move-

That the House of Representatives be requested to amend sub-item (e) by making bayonets, swords, scabbards, and attachments, free.

There is no reason why we should be at pains to prevent the importation of these goods when the Government go to enormous trouble to produce them here. The removal of these articles from the dutiable list will not interfere with any local industry, and I hope, therefore, that my request will be agreed to.

Request negatived.
