at least a little more advantage to the

whilst this bill reduced the duty on
sugar, It also Increased the protection of
sugar refiners. There had also been s
complete revision In the matter of drugs .
It was true, as stated by the Chairman of
the Committee, that the bill placed upon
the free liat . a large number of articles
not before on it, but the effect was
mainly hi the Interest of protection
and not in the Interest of revenue.
For Instance, there were many articles
placed noon the free list which were ele

try; and where • correlmondlng reduc
tion had not been made upon articles
into which they entered, and there were
other articles upon which a correspond
ing reduction had been made. There
was nothing In the hill In reference to
.the abolition or reduction of the
duty on coal. There wee nothing
in - reference to - • the abolition" - or
reduction of the duty on salt.
There were other articles not affected by
the bill, which new bear a high rate of
duty. in his jundgment the bill was
constructed In the interest of protection,
rather than in- the Interest of revenue..
It was in the Interest of that elms ofpeo
