Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) . - Time' registers and detectors are included' with- clocks in sub-item a; paragraph 1. They- are- certainly " dummy "' clocks; but I think- that they have been - wrongly classified. As every one knows, . these devices are for- industrial recording purposes, . and are- not timepieces. Perhaps the Minister (Senator Pearce) can say why they have not been included with typewriters, cash registers-, and similar- machines; with which they should be bracketed.-

Senator Pearce - Perhaps they are oat of place in paragraph, 1,; and should be io paragraph 2. If the honorable senator,desires . to move -in that direction I shall accept- such a request.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I move--

That the House of Representatives be. requested. >to leaveiout the words-" Time registers and detectors- " in:. sub-item, (a) (.1), and. insert suoh words after " n.ei" in sub-item: (a) (2).
