Senator DE LARGIE (Western Australia) . - I support the request. In 1901, I secured the imposition of a 10 per cent, duty upon hubs. We had, and still have, a very fine timber in Western Australia., a eucalypt locally known as the York gum. It is a splendid curly timber, specially suited to the manufacture of hubs. Under the 1908 Tariff, the 10 per cent, rate was re-imposed. In 1914 the duty was made 15 per cent., and that rate has continued to date.
