Senator GARDINER (New South) . - Is the figure " 3s." omitted?

Senator Pearce - No.

Senator GARDINER - I should like it to be. Was 3s. the old rate of duty, or does it represent an increase? I think it would be well to strike it out.

Senator McGregor - Previously hides, limed, fleshed, or split, were exempt from duty. When this Bill was framed it was proposed to make them dutiable at 5s. per hide, but it was subsequently learned that' an impost of 3s. per hide would be quite sufficient.

Request agreed to.

Request (by Senator Gardiner) proposed -

That the House of Representatives be requested to further amend the item by leaving; out the words " 3s."
