Senator VARDON (South Australia) . - I confess that I do not know what the Minister's request is.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.We will come to that directly.

Senator VARDON - We want to know what it is, so that we may be able to voteintelligently.

Senator Pearce - My proposal is to put duties of 25 and 20 per cent, on sub-item a, duties of 17J and 12J per cent, on subitem b, and to strike out sub-item g.

Senator VARDON - If the Minister would circulate his request in print we might consider it more conveniently, and' probably get on a little faster. I ask your ruling, sir, as to whether we could not adopt the first line of this item?

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.There is a request to delete the first two words, which must be dealt with by the Committee.

Senator VARDON - I want to know whether we could not adopt Senator Millen' s suggestion, and then consider the Minister's proposition regarding sub-items a and b before we come down to sub-item g.

Senator Millen - Then you would shut me out.
