Senator DUNCAN (New South Wales) . - The inordinately heavy duties originally proposed on. chinaware under the general Tariff were increased in another place on 17th June last. Asthe imposition of such heavy duties will prevent the importation of chinaware, more particularly from Eastern countries, I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to make the duty, sub-item (a), general, 35 per cent.

The chinaware mentioned in this sub-item is used in the homes of the people. The greater proportion of the duty will be paid on crockery used by the worker.
