Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - If the honorable senator measures his loyalty in pence, it is probably a fair standard. With regard to sub-item c, the other House proposes to split the difference; their original proposal was 30 per cent., British preferential Tariff; the Senate's request was 25 per cent.; and their suggestion is now 27½ per cent. I commend that to the Committee as a compromise, and also because it falls within a range of duties already approved. With regard to sub-item d, " Chains, n.e.i.," the House of Representatives did the same thing. I move -

That the modification of sub-items (c) and

(d)   be agreed to.
