Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I am afraid that the phraseology adopted for this item will give the Department some trouble later on. The object of the proposed amendment is to shut out lamps used for cooking purposes, and to include in this sub-item only lamps used for heating purposes. It should be remembered that the Primus is not the only lamp of this kind on the market. I should like to know what is meant by the words "other similar heating lamps." I suggest for the convenience of the Department that some more suitable terms might be found to express what is desired, and that it would be better to say " Vapour and oil heating lamps." I believe that is what is intended.

Suggest corrections
