Mr KIRWAN (Kalgoorlie) - I move-

That the motion be amended by the omission of the words "15 per cent."

In the case of item 60, the Senate asked that parasol, sunshade, and umbrella-handles, sticks, and fit-ups, whether mounted or not, should be added to the special exemptions, and the committee, at the instance of the Government, agreed to the request ; but now, when the Senate asks that axe and other unattached tool-handles shall be placed on the free list, they propose to disagree with the request, with the addition that the duty be reduced to 15 per cent. I think that we ought to divide on the motion in order to show their inconsistency.
