Senator CRAWFORD (QueenslandHonorary Minister) .- I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to make sub-item (c) read -

(c)   Single lever mortice locks and single lever mortice lock sets - ad valorem, British, 45 per cent.; intermediate, 50 per cent.; general, GO per cent.

Since these duties were tabled importers have been endeavouring to defeat their intention by importing locks separately, and claiming that they should be admitted under sub-item a at 35 per cent. British preferential, and 45 per cent, general tariff. If my request is agreed to the matter will be placed beyond dispute by the addition of the words, " Single lever mortice locks " to the words, " Single lever mortice lock sets."
