Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Postmaster-General) . - I move -

That the House of Representatives bo requested to amend paragraph (24) sub-item

(w)   of item 174 to read as follows: - " (24) Slicing-machines, not being veneerslicing machines, ad valorem. British, free; intermediate, 15 per cent.; general, 15 per cent."

Item 174 w 24 of the tariff proposals of the 28th November, 1935, limits the timber-slicing machines admissible thereunder to those of the rotary type. It has been ascertained that there are types of timber-slicing machines, other than the rotary type, which are not manufactured in the Commonwealth, and the amendment just moved has the effect of widening the scope of the item to include all types of timber-slicing machines, other than veneer-slicing machines. The limitation of item 174 w 24 to timber-slicing machines of the rotary type was the result of a recommendation by the Tariff Board.

The board was asked whether there was any objection to the item being amended to include all types of timberslicing machines, other, than veneerslicing machines. It has now intimated that it concurs in the wording of the item, as embodied in the request which I have moved.

Request agreed to.

Item agreed to, subject to a request.

Progress reported.
