The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Mccoll (VICTORIA) - The item before the Committee contains three proposals to amend sub-item b of item 134 of the original Tariff, and the Minister has submitted another proposal to deal with that subitem.

Senator Millen - I submit, sir, that if we can proceed in the way which you have suggested, we could now deal with the first paragraph in the schedule.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.This proposal will not alter the harmony of the revision of the item at all.

Senator Millen - I am not concerned with the harmony, but with the technical procedure.

Senator St Ledger - I think that the Minister is right for once, and possibly, because I say so, he may begin to think he is wrong. We have dealt with sub-item b, of item 134, so far as it relates to " braids n.e.i." We are now asked by the Minister to deal with item 134 as it appears in the original schedule so far as it relates to gimp n.e.i.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.The Committee are still dealing with subitem b, of item 134, of the original schedule, and I rule that the request is in order.

Request agreed to.

Item 139 -

By inserting in sub-item (g) before the word " Fittings " the word " Service."
