Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) . - It has been the practice of the Department to include X-ray apparatus, including generating apparatus and accessory apparatus, under this sub-item, and to charge the duty of 40 per cent. on these articles, as most of them come from America. I have been informed that this practice of the Department has recently been altered, and that these articles are now classified under adifferent heading, and admitted at a lower rate of duty. I should like to hear from the Minister in charge of the Bill what their exact position is.
