The CHAIRMAN (Senator Bakhap (TASMANIA) -The Committee has already dealt with the duties. If the honorable senator had desired the inclusion of a new sub-item he should have taken the opportunity to present his request when the Committee was dealing with the verbiage of the item, prior to devoting attention to the duties.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - May I ask under what rates of duties heavy vehicles such as lorries and chars-a-banc will be included ?

Senator Pearce - Chassis will come under the paragraph just dealt with.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - These heavy vehicles are complete.

Senator Pearce - Then they will be dutiable as assembled vehicles, the rates on which have been discussed. The Committee has also dealt with chassis, and has requested that they be admitted free.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Paragraph 4 of sub-item d deals with chassis only; that is to say, with the machinery of the motor vehicle.

Senator Pearce - The whole of the remainder is dealt with under paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 of sub-item d. Motor lorries and the like are not anywhere provided for as completed and separate vehicles, but they are dutiable in separate form.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - At any rate, the duty is very heavy. I desire to request the inclusion of a new sub-item.
