Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) . - 1 think that the Minister (Senator Pearce^ should favorably consider retaining the principle followed in every Federal Tariff that the duty on timber for boxmaking should exceed the duty on timber undressed, cut in sizes less than 7 inches by 2½ inches. I propose to move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to make the duty, sub-item (i), general, per 100 super. feet, 8s. 6d.

This will retain the same differentiation between the two classes of imports.
