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

That the modifications be agreed to.

The other House has accepted the requested' amendments made by the Senate, but it has -inserted certain modifications for the purpose of giving effect to the intention of the Senate- more effectively. It proposes to- alter the- date upon which the duty shall be operative from 1st November, 1921, to 1st January, 1922, because the local manufacturers are not yet in a position to supply the local demands. They expect to get the machinery going early in the new year. The amend ment, represents only a short delay. The amendment in sub-item a to insert 'a' comma and' the words "and felt" remedies an omission. The modification in sub-item b is, in substance, the acceptance by the other House of the Senate's request.
