Senator CRAWFORD (Queensland) (Honorary Minister) . - I move -

That the modifications be agreed to.

When this item left the Senate it was divided into two parts; but further consideration has shown that it would be extremely difficult to administer it in that form. The House of Representatives has therefore combined the two items, with a uniform duty of 10 per cent. British, 15 per cent, intermediate, and 25 per cent, general. Since this item was before the Senate previously, further representations have been made by the Premier of Tasmania to the effect that -two firms intend to establish factories in Tasmania for the manufacture of carpets. Tn that case. I feel sure that the Senate will agree that the duties now proposed are reasonable.
