Senator E J RUSSELL (VICTORIA) -- I move-

That the House of Representatives be requested to further amend the item by inserting before the last paragraph the following words : - " By adding to sub-item (k) the following words, and on and after - December, 1911, per cwt, 2s. and1s. 6d.' "

Senator Millen - What does sub-item k deal with?

Senator E J RUSSELL (VICTORIA) - Strawboard.

Senator Vardon - I rise to a point of order, sir. Yesterday I endeavoured to submit a similar proposal in regard to incandescent mantles, and you ruled that I could not submit a request regarding any other sub-items than those contained in the schedule.

Senator Millen - But we had not the President's ruling on the point then.

Senator Vardon - I am relying upon the ruling which the Chairman gave yesterday, and which has not been disputed, that I could not move a request in regard to any sub-item other than those mentioned in the schedule in this Bill. If I was out of order yesterday in seeking to move in that direction, I take it that Senator E. J. Russell is out of order now.
