Senator E B JOHNSTON (Western Australia) . - Item 145 reads - 145. Iron and steel plates and sheet, viz., corrugated, galvanized, galvanized not corrugated, and corrugated not galvanized, per ton : British, 90s.; general, 130s.

I move -

That the House of Representatives he requested to make the duty, per ton: British. 20s."

The request provides for a reduction of the British preferential tariff on galvanized iron by 70s. a ton.

Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I rise to order. As item 145 is not included in this schedule, I submit that it is not competent for the honorable senator to move the request.

Senator E B Johnston - I rise to order. Surely there is some means by which honorable senators who wish to amend existing duties may do so.

The CHAPMAN (Senator Sampson). - The committee is not dealing with the whole tariff schedule.

Senator E B Johnston - It is being amended.
