Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) - I would point out to Senator McColl that spokes, rims, and felloes are now largely manufactured from Australian timbers. We have excellent timbers which are suitable for the purpose. Under this Bill undressed hickory will still be admitted free. But since the manufacture of rims, spokes, and felloes from Australian timber is already undertaken in many of our principal towns, it follows that we can also manufacture those articles from hickory, which is admitted, in the rough, free. To encourage the manufacture of these vehicle parts, we ought to impose a duty upon them.
