Senator GRANT (New South Wales) . - I should like to know from the Minister the procedure in cases where reduced duties are recommended in the schedule. Are goods on which reduced duties are proposed to be levied admitted duty free as soon as the schedule is tabled, or is the old duty charged until the bill has been passed, and the royal assent given to it? Senator Thompson need not worry about refunds of duty consequent upon alterations made in this schedule in the Senate. The duties set out in the schedule will be adopted. In any case the money will still be in the country.
