Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - It seems something of an anomaly that fly doors, which are mostly manufactured of wood, should be classified differently from other doors. They are classified with doors which are manufactured of lighter timber - that is, timber under inches, and they pay the lowest rate of duty that is imposed upon any class of doors. I know of one factory in which they are manufactured by the thousand - I refer to Pengelly's, in South Australia. When those who wish to encourage this industry realize that nearly every house nowadays is fitted with these doors, they will vote for the proposed duty upon them.
