Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to amend the item by leaving out thowords " By omitting."

If that request is carried I propose to submit a further request to deal with the rest of the item, which, if carried, will meanthat the present Tariff will remain untouched, as far as this item1 is concerned,, that is, dynamos up to 200 horse-power, will remain at 20 per cent., and dynamosabove 200 horse-power, at 12 \ per -cent., while generators for direct coupling tr> steam turbines will be 5 per cent, and free. If I am beaten the Minister can move hisrequest.

Senator Pearce - Oh, no ! That is * separate proposition.

Senator MILLEN - Of course it is a; separate proposition, and I did not stateanything else.

Senator Pearce - The understandingwas to deal separately with sub-items a and b.

Senator MILLEN - Nobody proposed to go beyond that understanding. The Minister seems to think that I am trying totrip him up, whereas I was merely trying, to explain my desire, and the procedure by which I sought to attain that end.
