Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) .- Surely Senator Leckie does not suggest that the committee should be guided by the duties imposed under the 1929 tariff?

Senator Leckie - I did not suggest that.

Senator PAYNE - I refuse to be influenced in the slightest by the duties imposed by resolution in that year, because they were not submitted to the Tariff Board for investigation and report, and were never ratified by Parliament. The duties in force prior to the increases made in 1929 should be the basis upon which to consider the rates in the schedule.
