Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister for Defence) . - I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to amend sub-item (b) by leaving out "1923," and inserting " 1924" in lieu thereof.

A difficulty lias arisen in regard to some orders which have been placed, and which could not be delivered within the period provided for by the sub-item as it stands, Honorable senators will bear in mind that the duty in this case may be further deferred if good cause is shown, for its postponement.

Senator Keating - The honorable senator might compromise, and make the year 1925.

Senator PEARCE - This is a reasonable extension, and I ask the Committee not to press for any further extension of the date on which these deferred duties shall come into operation.
