Sir JOHN QUICK (Bendigo) .- I think that the same arrangement should be made in regard to Australian blended whisky as has been made in regard to Australian blended wine brandy. In a letter which I have received from Mr. J. M. Joshua, he says -

Re "Spirits Bill 1906," and the maturing pro visions thereof, it appears to us that there will be a strong (and just) demand for preliminary notice, both on the part of distillers and importers. May I take the liberty of reminding you that this matter was carefully worked out in the Canadian law.

In Canada notice similar to that now proposed was given, and, in view of the attitude taken by the representatives of SouthAustralia, I move -
