Mr KELLY (Wentworth) . - In the absence of a Ministerial explanation, there appears to be a difficulty in ascertaining the intention of this clause. I take it that it is to afford something in the nature of a guarantee to an importer that, if any spirit which he introduces does not come up to the standard required by the analyst - a standard he cannot forecast - it will not be destroyed,, if intended for re-export.

Sir William Lyne - That is the intention.

Mr KELLY - Then there can be no objection to it.
