Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) - - I have no objection to the proposal ; but I cannot resist the temptation to draw attention to a curious fact. I presume that the question of inserting brewers' pitch in item 44 has been before the Minister for months, but the schedule is no sooner printed and brought before us, than the Vice-President of the Executive Council wants the article struck out.

Senator McGregor - The item will be made free. That will please the honorable senator all the better.

Senator MILLEN - That is not .the question. I suggest to the Government that they should withdraw the whole thing, when, apparently, they do not seem to know their own mind.
