Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (5:41 AM) . - This item deserves some attention from the Committee. Speaking from memory, in the 1908Tariff, cotton socks and stockings were free. In the Tariff of 1914 they were again free, but under this Tariff they are subject to duties of 30 per cent., 40 per cent., and 45 per cent. As Senator Payne informs me that he has given notice of a request for a reduction of the duty, I shall make way for him.
