Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) .- Seeing that under the last item, which relates to articles used by the farmer, a duty is imposed under the British preferential Tariff, I fail to see why in this case imports from the United Kingdom should be free. If we make the farmer pay duties on the materials he uses, we should apply the same duties to ' ' the other fellow. ' ' For that reason, I move -

Thatthe House of Representatives be requested, to make the duty, sub-item (a), British, per gallon, 2s., or ad val., 10 per cent., whichever rate returns the higher duty.

Request negatived.

Senator Pearce - It will.
