Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) .- The Customs officials advise me that in order to give effect to the honorable senator's proposal it will be necessary first of all to move a request for the insertion of the letters " n.e.i." after the word " saccharin " in the item as it stands.

Request (by Senator Lynch) agreed to-

That the House of Representatives be requested to amend the item to read -

(1)   Saccharin n.e.i. and other similar substitutes for sugar, per lb., 20s.

(2)   Saccharin for use in public hospitals, as prescribed by departmental bylaws, free.

Request agreed to.

Item agreed to, subject to a request.
