Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I think that what I have submitted on behalf of Senator Fraser will really accomplish what Senator Givens desires. According to the statements which have been made by Senator McColl and others, the duties of 35 and 30 per cent, on vehicles are sufficient to induce the local manufacture of them. If, as they have said, they are all manufactured here now, that will only increase the price. In connexion with the previous item, we requested an increased duty on part of the raw material for wheels. I propose to submit a request for the deletion of " Wheels n.e.i." from sub-item b, with a view to inserting the following new sub-item, " f Vehicle parts, namely, Wheels, n.e.i., 35 and 30 per cent., and on and after December. 191 1. 40 and 35 per cent." That will, I think, meet the difficulty caused by an increased duty on part of the raw material. 1
