Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) . - Under the departmental by-laws, all parts of gramophones are admitted, under item 404, British, free; intermediate, free, and general. 10 per cent. I am informed that these parts are being imported under the item referred to and assembled in the Gommonwealth. The cases, also, are being made in the Commonwealth. This gives a certain amount of employment; and, from that point of view, the duties proposed under this item are justified.
