Senator CHATAWAY (Queensland) . - The proposal of the Minister will scarcely cover the whole position. How does he intend to deal with gig saddles and saddles which are used for racing purposes?

Senator McGregor - They will come under this item, with the exception of riding saddles.

Senator CHATAWAY - Then buggy saddles are to include every class of saddle - even racing saddles - except riding saddles.

Senator McGregor - Racing saddles are riding saddles.

Senator CHATAWAY - I would suggest that after the words " harness saddles " the words " as defined by bylaws " should be inserted. We should then be able to discriminate between an expensive saddle which was made in Australia and a comparatively cheap saddle which was manufactured outside of the Commonwealth.

Request agreed to.

Item 353 -

By adding to the item a new sub-item as follows : - " (d) Hides, limed, or fleshed or split, per hide, 5s. ; and on and after 14th December, 191 1, 3s."
