Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) . - It is going a long way too far to search out a lot of petty items covering articles in, general use in other industries, and propose the imposition of duties upon them under these conditions. The Minister is most unreasonable, and the honorable senator moving the request is also unreasonable. This is going through the Tariff with a microscope to find out something to occupy the time of the Committee. Every user of an engine requires engine-cleaning waste. Its production cannot be described as a valuable manufacture in any sense of the word. The duty will only tend to build up an unimportant industry by adding to the expense of all who have engines to clean.
