Senator NEEDHAM (Western Australia) . - I move -

That the House of Representatives be requested to amend the item by inserting the word " all " before the word " Tanks," by leaving out "not exceeding 400 gallons in capacity" and by adding after the word ". goods," the words "per 100 gallons,1s.".

In reply to the Vice-President of the Executive Council, I still maintain that the square tanks which he said are being used by the farmer can bemadein Australia.

Senator McGregor - I know that.

Senator NEEDHAM - And they are being made here. I have seen them made in the railway workshops of Western Australia.

Senator McGregor - Always of a larger capacity than 400 gallons.

Senator NEEDHAM - And smaller. By agreeing to the item in its present form we shall not be remedying an anomaly, but creating one.
