Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) . - When this Tariff was introduced elsewhere this sub-item bore a duty of ls. 6d. per 100 super, feet more than that in connexion with the sub-item immediately preceding it. An amendment was made in another place, however, and a further amendment has now been requested by this Committee. There must have been some definite reason for the margin of ls. 6d., and I suggest that it be adhered to. It was made, no doubt, in recognition of the fact that the timber dealt with in the sub-item immediately under discussion is cut into lengths for the specific purpose for which it will be eventually employed.
