Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) . - I point out to the Committee that this request, if agreed to, would allow unassembled parts of limousines, landaulettes, and RollsRoyce cars to be imported free and assembled here. Let there be no mistake about this. In spite of all this nonsense we have heard about the development of the back-blocks with motor cars, I have never seen motor cars developing the backblocks of this country, but I have seen the bullock dray. This request will have the effect of allowing luxuries to escape free of duty. The item can very well stand the rate of duty fixed in the schedule.
