SenatorE. D. MILLEN (New South Wales - Minister for Repatriation) [10.6]. - I think this Committee will have little difficulty in accepting the message from the other House. The House of Representatives have agreed to the request for the reduction of the British preferential rate from l¾d. to1¼d. I want specially to draw to this item the attention of those honorable senators who have been so eloquent in pointing out that the other House accepted all suggestions for an increase of duty but rejected suggestions for lowering the duty. Here is a case in point to the contrary.


Senator THOMAS (NEW SOUTH WALES) - A½d. loyalty to the British Empire!
