Senator McDOUGALL (New South Wales) .- I think that the duty on motor car bodies is rather unfair. They differ in character very much. There are two-seated motor cars, such as are bought by a business man who simply wants a small car to carry himself and his driver ; and there are motor cars capable of carrying four, five, or six people. Some distinction should be made. We should not propose a duty of£24 10s. or 35 per cent., whichever rate returns the higher duty, on all motor car bodies alike.
