Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Repatriation) . - The Senate's request on this item was to substitute specific duties of 6d., 9d., and1s. per lb. for the ad valorem, duties on the article lactose, the idea evidently being to give a higher measure of protection than was proposed by another place to the manufacture of this particular product. Another place has agreed to the principle of the request, but, instead of accepting the specific duties, has preferred the ad valorem duties imposed on the other sub-items, and in this case has increased to 30, 35, and 40 per cent, the ad valorem duties originally proposed. I move -

That the modification be agreed to.
