Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) . - In order to show that I do not wish to run wild over the idea of Free Trade, and that I can be as reasonable as any man when up against facts, I shall make another suggestion. We have reduced the duties on wire netting and barbed wire, and I now wish, by leave, to alter the request I have just submitted, and move -

That the House of Representatives berequested to make the duties: - British, 40s.; intermediate, 60s.

This leaves the duty in the general column as it appears in the schedule.

Request, by leave, amended accordingly.
