Senator DUNCAN (New South Wales) . - The sub-item under consideration covers silk or material containing silk or having silk worked thereon except "piece goods enumerated in sub-item f." Sub-item f reads, "Woollen or containing wool n.e.i.," and lower down it will be seen that paragraph 1 of sub-item h reads, "Woollen or containing wool." Sub-item f and paragraph 1 of subitem h are dutiable at rates differing from those imposed under sub-item d.

Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - What is meant is that if the material is made of both wool and silk it comes in under the woollen duties.

Senator DUNCAN - I remind Senator Millen that sub-item f makes no reference to silk. <

Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - No; but a woollen material may have silk in it, or a silk material may have wool in it, and where in a material silk and wool are mixed it comes in under the woollen duty.
