Senator GIVENS (Queensland) . - I have no objection to withdrawing my proposal temporarily; but I would point out to Senator Lynch that the consensus of opinion is that \ per cent, of chromium is a fair minimum. If the steel used for mining purposes does not contain \ per cent., it is not fair to class it as chrome steel. Therefore, I think that Senator Lynchis making a mistake in insisting that steel should be called chrome steel, and be allowed to be imported as such if it contains a lower percentage. There should be a decent percentage, and 1 per cent, will impose no hardship upon "anybody.

Request, by leave, withdrawn. Request (by Senator Lynch) proposed -

That the House of Representatives be requested to amend the item by leaving out the words " By inserting in sub-item (b), after the word ' containing,' the words ' not less than 2 per cent, of.' "
