Senator WILSON (South Australia) . - I admit there is a great deal in what the Minister has said. I agree that Canadian manufacturers of paper are not' entitled to expect very much from us at the present juncture. I have no wish to delay the work of the Committee, and as there seems to be a general opinion, after the statement made by the Minister, -that the duty in the intermediate column should be £2 per ton, I ask permission to withdraw my request in favour of that to be submitted by Senator E. D. Millen.

Request, by leave, withdrawn.
