Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) . - I do not agree with Senator Gardiner. The Minister (Senator Pearce) says that we can discuss the matter now if we care to do so ; but neither the time nor the opportunity is favorable for a full, discussion upon such a very important subject. The requirement of the commercial community is that the decisions made under departmental . by-laws should be circulated so that every one will have an opportunity of coming to know of each decision arrived at. I feel sure that further opportunities will arise for the discussion of this very important matter, and in view of the peculiar circumstances in which we are placed tonight, although I am keenly interested, I am willing to postpone the discussion until some more opportune occasion.

Item agreed to.

Postponed item 208 -

Manufactures of metal n.e.i., ad val., British, 35 per cent. ; intermediate, 40 per cent. ; general, 45 per cent.
