Senator FRASER (Victoria) .-I am assured by men, upon whom I can absolutely rely, that under the. present Tariff considerable injustice is being done to certain persons who have established large works, and who are employing a large number of hands. The matter can be adjusted by a slight increase of duty being made in respect of item 380. In the absence of that re-adjustment, however, an injustice will be done to those who have incurred considerable expense in establishing an industry, and who are employing a large body of men.

Items 306 (Wood, &c), 307 (Wicket, bamboo, cane, or wood), 309 (Tool handles n.e.i.), 310 (Adze, axe, scythe, and bentwood handles), agreed to.

Item 311 -

By inserting in the item after the word " wood " the words " including fly doors."

Request (by Senator Chataway) proposed -

That theHouse of Representatives be requested to leave out the item.
