Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - The sub-item, in the original schedule, reads -

(g)   Rifles, Military and Match and Fittings, including authorized Cadet Rifles and Morris Tubes...... ad valorem, 5 per cent. and free.

This amendment will mean that, under this comparatively free item, service fittings will come in free, but match rifle fittings will fall under some other head. Seeing that we admit match rifles free, including rifles generally, why should fittings for match rifles be placed in a different category from that in which service fittings are placed? I should like to hear an explanation from the Minister.
