Mr. RALSTON:

The date is extended to

March, 1933, and the words "under regulations prescribed by the minister" have been inserted. Those were not in the old item.

Mr. RHODES:

For example, that section

was intended to permit the importation of parts for machines which had been purchased in the United States. Under it, however, parts of all kinds, for all kinds of machines, could be imported. The regulation was intended to make it clear that the intent of the original resolution should be carried out.

Mr. YOUNG:

What I have in mind is this: I believe this duty will be collected on wool coming from any country but New Zealand, but we import certain kinds of wool from China for the making of carpets. Wool of that kind is not produced in New Zealand, but from now on we are to have a duty of 15 per cent against the raw materials entering into the manufacture of carpets.

The question of wool for carpets, mentioned by my hon. friend is under consideration at the present time. If the circumstances are as related by the hon. gentleman, as I think they are, it is quite competent for us to deal with the matter by order in council.

I think we have been proceeding too rapidly. If item 599 has been adopted it has not been so understood on this side of the house.

Mr. YOUNG:

There has been a misunderstanding in the matter. We commenced to discuss these items, and at the request of the hon. member for Shelbume-Yarmouth the minister went back to the former item. When that discussion was concluded you called "carried" and we thought you were dealing with the former item. I believe that is the situation.
