Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - By adopting the request, we shall leave the Tariff practically in the position in which it was previous to the introduction of this Bill, when there was very little complaint as to its protective incidence in connexion with this item. What has been done so far has been to put rimu in the same item as white pine, and make it dutiable at 6d., whilst kauri pine, which was previously included with white pine, will in future be charged the same duty as other foreign timbers.
