Senator CRAWFORD (QueenslandHonorary Minister) . - I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to make sub-item (d). (4) read as follows : -

(4)   Chassis, but not including rubber tyres, storage batteries, shock absorbers, bumper bars, or sparking plugs (a) Unassembled, ad valorem - British, free; intermediate, 12$ per cent.; general, 17 j per cent.; (6) Assembled, ad valorem - British, 5 per cent.; intermediate, 20 per cent.; general, 25 per cent.

The proposal is to amend the item by the addition of sparking plugs. These are now commercially made in Australia, and there is no reason why imported cars should not be equipped with the Australian product. It is well known that 'a considerable number of cars are imported into this country with sparking plugs packed separately, although they form part of the original equipment of the chassis.
