Mr JOHN BROWN (Minister for Sport, Recreation and Tourism, Minister for Administrative Services and Minister Assisting the Minister for Industry and Commerce)(4.38) —I move:

Excise Tariff Proposals No. 8 (1983).

Excise tariff proposals No. 8 1983 which I have just tabled formally place before Parliament, as required by law, an excise tariff alteration made by Commonwealth of Australia Gazette notice on 23 September 1983. Proposals No. 8 1983 decrease the excise duty on spirit used in the fortification of Australian grape wine, from $2.61 per litre of alcohol to $1.50 per litre of alcohol. The proposals became operative on and from 8.00 p.m. eastern standard time on 23 September 1983. This excise change will be backdated to Budget night, 23 August 1983, in a subsequent Bill. I commend the proposals to the House.

Debate (on motion by Mr Moore) adjourned.
