Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) .- The effective duty is really 25 per cent., because practically all saws of this class come from the United States of America. I am informed that W. H. Blakeley, of Melbourne, is a manufacturer of the saws included in this item, and Senator Pratten has also stated that a Sydney firm is engaged in the business. As the local manufacturers have to import the material, steel circularplate, which is dutiable, there is not a great margin of protection.

Item agreed to.

Item 216 (Steel grit and steel wool, &c.) and item 217 (Sprinklers for perfume bottles) agreed to.

Item 218 (Tanks not exceeding 400 gallons in capacity).
