Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) (2:47 AM) . - Since we dealt with item 123h, it has come to light that we have done a very grave injustice to a manufacturer in New South Wales, who has gone to the trouble of importing machinery, and engaging in the trade of printing the pieces for the manufacture of handkerchiefs. We want to ask the other House to insert after "defined." the words "otherwise than by printing or dyeing." That will bring that portion again under duties of 35 and 30 per cent., and give the manufacturer an opportunity of going on with the industry, which he was encouraged to embark in by the Tariff as it existed before. Item 380 deals with motor cars. Some misunderstanding arose in the minds of some honorable senators, including members of the Government, with respect to the duties which were proposed by Senator McDougall, namely, £42 and £36, £24 10s. and £21, £17 10s. and £15 He massed his opportunity to submit a request in connexion with item 392B.
