Senator LYNCH (Western Australia) . - These articles were under earlier Tariffs admitted free. They were subjected to an impost of 5 per cent, under the Tariff of 1914. I ask the Government to put them on the free list. This is clearly a revenue duty.

Senator Pearce - No, it is partly protective. The rubber parts of atomizers are made in the Commonwealth.

Senator LYNCH - I am glad to have some explanation of the duty, but how does a duty of 10 per cent, protect the manufacturer of the parts made here? I have drawn attention to the item as, in my opinion, the duty is not -protective. If it is merely a revenue duty, it is no credit to us to derive revenue from such a source.
