Senator LYNCH (Western Australia) . - I notice it is proposed to impose a heavier duty on the lighter rails than on the heavier. I should like to know the reason, because the lighter rails are those used by small syndicates in this country.

Senator Russell - It is because of the fact that the lighter rails go more to the ton. Rails and the materials mentioned in sub-itemsc and d - fish plates, ties, &c. - are all made in Australia.
