Senator GIVENS (Queensland) . - r think' that Senator McColl is- mistaken. Suppose that chrome steel is used in a crushing-mill. There is nothing, to prevent the whole mill, with the exception of the chrome steel balls, being, manufactured in Australia. The linings are constantly being made in this country. The only parts imported would be the chrome steel parts, which cannot at present, be made here. They must be imported1, no matter what duty is imposed'.

Senator McColl - If we- are1 not care* ful', we- snail' allow' stamper- shoes, whichare made- in Australia, to come1 in- free.

Senator GIVENS - I think not. I have riot urged the reduction- cf the percentage from 2 to- J per cent, from- a Free Trade point of view. What I have suggested' is a fair compromise.. But under Senator Lynch' s proposal steel that contained a mere trace- of chromium would be imported tree. I would asb my honorable- friend; to- accept, my proposal, and withdraw his' own.

Request,, by leave,- withdrawn. Request (Senator Givens)1 proposed -

* That? the House of Representatives be- requested to amend the item by leaving out "2" and inserting in Heu thereof " i"
