Senator ST LEDGER (Queensland) . - I wish to ask the Minister whether he will consent to reconsider the position with respect to ribbons and galoons not being bindings? We are told that this is merely proposed to secure smoother working in the Department, but if the item be carried these goods will have to bear a higher duty than that charged upon them now. They are not made here, and they must be capable of distinction and definition by the Department. They are very necessary for costume-makers and dressmakers, and it will be of great assistance to them to leave these articles as they are in the existing Tariff. I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to amend the item by leaving out the words " ' Ribbons, Galloons not being bindings,' and the words ".
