Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Repatriation) . - I move -

That the modification be agreed to.

When this item reached the Senate Committee certain duties were leviable on live stock, and the Committee decided to make the item free, but I think inadvertently fell into an error, because the original item included the words, "animals, living (except for stud purposes)," and these words were retained. The effect of the request submitted by the Committee was, therefore, to make all the living animals specified free except those which came in for stud purposes. The other House accepted the request, and now suggests that we should strike out the words " except for stud purposes."
