Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Repatriation) . - I propose in this case to give further evidence of the general willingness on the part of the Government to meet the Committee.

Senator THOMAS (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Whenever the numbers ore against the Minister.

Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - That is one of those ungenerous remarks for which I om sure Senator Thomas will be sorry. On discussing this matter with the officers of the Trade and Customs Department, it has been suggested to me that a better way of accomplishing what Senator Gardiner desires would be to refrain from altering the verbiage of paragraphs 1 and 2 of sub-item c and, instead, to moke paragraph 2 of that sub-item dutiable in the same way as paragraph 1. It will bc necessary for Senator Gardiner to withdraw his request temporarily to enable me to submit a request of which I have given notice in connexion with paragraph 1 of sub-item c.

Senator GARDINER - I ask leave to withdraw my request.

Request, by leave, withdrawn.

Request (by Senator E. D. Millen) proposed -

That the House of Representatives' be requested to make the duty, sub-item (o), paragraph 1, per ton, general, £2.
