Mr KINGSTON (South AustraliaMinister for Trade and Customs) - I move -

That the amendment requested be not made.

It is impossible to find a justification for exempting wheat, while maize, barley, oats, and all the other kinds of grain which are included under the general term of grain and pulse are subject to duty. Those who have studied the proceedings of another place will, I am sure, have come to the conclusion that the members of the Senate will desire to put right this anomaly at the earliest moment by extending equal treatment to all classes of grain.
