Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) . - I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to make the duties, sub-item (b), ad val., British, 10 per cent. ; intermediate, 15 per cent.; general, 20 per cent.

The intention is to place waste for engine cleaning on the same footing as axle waste. There is an establishment in Melbourne, and another in Sydney, engaged in the manufacture of engine-cleaning waste, and if the sub-item is allowed to remain as it stands, that industry will be given no protection whatever, whilst protection is given to the manufacture of axle waste.
