Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Postmaster-General) . - Honorable senators will recollect that there were a. number of similar items previously debated in the tariff on which the Government had increased the rate of duty recommended by the Tariff Board in order to leave a margin for the purpose of trade treaty negotiations. This committee has already expressed its views with regard to the matter. If trade treaties with certain foreign countries are concluded, the rates will be. adjusted in accordance with the terms of the treaties. I ask honorable senators to forbear from pressing the matter at this stage.
