Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) . - I am in entire agreement with the Minister (Senator Pearce) that motor car chassis should bear some taxation. I accept the Minister's suggestion, and move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to make the duty, sub-item (d), paragraph 4 (a), general, ad val., 15 per cent.

A consequential alteration will be necessary in dealing with paragraph 4 (b) where the duty in the intermediate column should be raised from 10 per cent, to 12½ per cent., and in the general column from 12½ per cent, to 17½ per cent.
