Mr FORDE (Capricorni a) (Minister for Trade and Customs) . - Despitethe Government's proposal that the matter should be referred to the Tariff Board, the committee on Friday last decided that the period of maturity for barley malt whisky should be increased from two to three years. It would be inconsistent to have a three-year period for malt whiskies and a two-year period for blended whiskies. I agree that the period of maturity should be the same in both instances, but, to be consistent in the Government's attitude that the matter should be referred to the Tariff Board, I shall oppose the amendment.

Amendment agreed to
