I would start specifically, as my honoured leader stated the other
day. It seems there has been no discussion whatever of the question why in the case of two implements made of steel, one should bear a duty of 15 per cent and the other 10 per cent in the tariff.

One of the first things I would do would be to find out the relationship if protection was desired. I have never said I would sweep the slate clean, but I would spend a little time considering whether there should be this inequality when both implements are made of steel.
