Mr O'MALLEY (Tasmania) - - I had hoped that after all the discussion which has taken place upon the Tariff honorable members generally would have refrained from further debate. Some honorable members appear to think that good machinery cannot be made in Australia ; butI would point out that the Melbourne Tramway Company, after having had a most unsatisfactory experience with imported machinery, have for some years given their contracts to local manufacturers. I shall support the retention of duty at 15 per cent., and I hope that we shall at once proceed to a vote.
