Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) (3:29 AM) . - I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to insert the following new sub-item - " (ff) Woollen, or containing wool, for women's and children's dresses, ad val., British,. 20 per cent.; intermediate, 25 per cent. ; general, 30 per cent."

This request will appeal to the good sense of the majority of honorable senators in view of the fact that we are not manufacturing any of these textile fabrics. It has been shown very clearly, even by those who opposed my previous requests, that these , are all imported from Great Britain.

The CHAIRMAN (Senator Bakhap - The same point arises with respect to the request of Senator Payne as in the case of that moved by Senator Pratten. Its subject-matter is included in and covered by sub-itemf, which has been disposed of. I cannot accept the proposed request.

Senator Payne - Sub-item freads, " Woollen, or containing wool, n.e.i." My purpose is to include something which is not elsewhere included.

The CHAIRMAN - The honorable senator may effect his purpose by securing the recommittal of the item after the schedule has been considered.

Senator Payne - Shall I be inorder in requesting the inclusion of a new subitem which will read, " Materials for the manufacture of women's and children's dress goods other than cotton and linen" ?

The CHAIRMAN - The honorable senator may not move except as is provided under the Standing Orders, and according to the practice of the Senate. I repeat that, since the subject-matter of his requested amendment has been already dealt with, I cannot accept it.

Item agreed to, subject to requests.
