Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) (2:16 AM) . - The necessity for this alteration has been represented to the Government. The bottles covered by the request are made here in large quantities, but the protection afforded the industry was inadvertently removed by an amendment made in another place altering the capacity of the bottles dealt with from 5 fluid drams to 8 fluid drams. It was not intended to include bottles of the class to which the request applies, and the request, if agreed to, will give the industry the protection to which it is entitled.

Request agreed to.

Item agreed to, subject to a request.
