Senator HARDY (New South Wales) . - I cannot understand the reasoning of the committee, for at an earlier stage it decided that the recommendations of the Tariff Board should not be given effect in the general tariff. The vote just taken reverses that decision, and indicates that the committee-is not in favour of an intermediate tariff giving mostfavourednation treatment to certain countries. I cannot accept Senator Johnston's suggestion that the principle just agreed to shall apply generally, for I regard the vote as applying only to glassware, and not as a condemnation of a principle previously accepted by the committee.
