Senator LECKIE (Victoria) .- Sub-item a of this item covers electroplated spoons, forks, butter, fish and fruit knives, and sub-item c platedware n.e.i. The duties imposed under each sub-item have been reduced. The principal material involved is nickel silver, for which the Australian manufacturer pays ls. 7d. per lb. and the British manufacturer only ll£d. per lb. Will the Minister explain why platedware n.e.i., covered by sub-item c, has been separated from electroplated spoons and forks in sub-item a? The nickel plating industry has been established in Australia for many years, but the manufacture of plated spoons and forks has been undertaken in Australia only in recent years.
