Senator GARDINER (New. South Wales) .- I freely admit that I made a mistake in dealing with motor vehicles on this sub-item, but the arguments I used are equally applicable to material required for facilitating railway communication, because the trouble with all the State railways at the present time is that owing to the high cost of material the lines cannot be run at a profit. Those States with the largest number of primary producers are most likely to be hit by this duty. To give Canada and other Dominions real preference, and to concede to Great Britain a greater measure of preference, would be only a fair thing.
