Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) . - I take it that this item was designed to encourage the establishment of large chemical works in Australia. I see that sub-item a does not come into operation until the 1st January next at the earliest, and that the second part does not come into operation until October next year at the earliest. Senator E. D. Millen has now moved to include the first part of sub-item b with soda ash in the preceding paragraph, and I assume that the second part of sub-item b will also be altered in conformity with the others; that is to say, all these deferred duties, which are imposed to encourage the establishment of big chemical works, will come into operation when these works are established.

Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Some of these items are already being made here.

Request agreed to.
