Senator ST LEDGER (Queensland) . - This alteration is only proposed for departmental convenience. Here is a sample of a fruit-jar, which, it will be seen, is covered with a metal cap. If the proposed alteration be made, every shipment of fruit- jars with metal caps attached, and not with separate glass stoppers, will have to be opened. The jars will have to be valued and charged at one rate, while the metal tops will have to be valued and charged as manufactures of metals. In order to get over that difficulty, these fruitjars have been allowed to come in in this form. The opening of every package will not assist in the administration of the Tariff. I should like to know the necessity for the proposed alteration.
