Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Repatriation) . - When the schedule originally came to this Chamber, it provided that the duty was to operate from the 31st October, 1921, and that date has been, altered by another place to 31st March, 1922. It is only a matter of a few months, andthe alteration has been made. because it was thought that the industry was not in a position to supply a reasonable quantity of this material within that time. It has now reached the position where it is able to deliver, and as it is only a question of five months, I suggest that the Committee agree to the modification. I move -
