Motion agreed to.

Item 78, Manufactures of metal, viz. : - Agricultural, horticultural, and viticultural machinery and implements, n.e.i., including shares and plough plates out to shape, horse gears ; and road-making ploughs, scoops, horse road rollers, and machines, ad valorem, 15 per cent.

Request.- That the duty be reduced to 10 per cent.

SirWILLIAMMcMILLAN(Wentworth). - With a view to shorten debate, I suggest that honorable members might be permitted to discuss the duty to be imposed upon machinery generally, and that the Government should consent to a test vote being taken upon this request. The Senate have proceeded upon the general principle of reducing the all-round duty of 15 per cent. upon machinery to 10 per cent., and one vote should suffice to test the feeling of the committee.
