Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister for Defence) . - This matter has been fully considered by the Government. It is proposed to leave paragraph a of sub-item c2 as it stands, with the intimation that where these films are brought in for educational purposes they can be admitted under departmental bylaws free.

Senator Duncan - Only for the Education Department ?

Senator PEARCE - Yes. When they are otherwise introduced the films, I think, might fairly be dutiable. I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to make the duty, sub-item (c) (2) (b), per lineal foot, intermediate and general, 1½d.

The duty on home kinematograph films has already been reduced to½d., and this request will restore the original line in the Tariff.
