Mr OSBORNE (Evans) (Minister for Air) . - I ask for leave of the committee to withdraw the motions described as Customs Amendment No. 5 and Excise Amendment No. 2, which I moved on 13th

May. I should like to explain to the committee the reason for withdrawing those two motions. The two amendments dealt with the exemption from customs and excise duties of stores used by an aircraft in the operation of an internanational air service or flight. The Parliamentary Draftsman has pointed out that adequate provision already exists in the Customs Act 1901-1959 and in the Excise Act 1901-1958 to exempt aircraft stores from duty, and that it is not necessary to make special items in the Tariffs to cover these goods.

Motions - by leave - withdrawn.
