Senator PETER RAE(9.39) —I move:

At end of motion, add ', but the Senate is of the opinion that the impact of the Government's new tax on wine, when taken in conjunction with changes in the taxation treatment of imports of wine, unreasonably and unfairly disadvantages the Australian wine producing and grape growing industry at a time when imports of surplus protected and subsidised European wines are disrupting the Australian wine industry and when there is an inquiry proceeding into the future structure of the industry and calls upon the Government to delay the commencement of the tax subject to receiving and considering the report of the said inquiry'.

Words have been added to that motion at the request of Senators Hill and Jessop and with the Opposition's support.

Question put:

That the words proposed to be added (Senator Peter Rae's amendment) be added.
