Mr CASEY (Corio) (Treasurer) (5:15 AM) . - I move -

That the proviso be omitted.

The proviso was inserted so that contracts entered into before the operation of this measure which did not contain a specific clause fixing the price of flour might be varied by the contractors in accordance with the amount of tax proposed. It has been pointed out by some States that they have no Wheat Products Prices Act, and, accordingly, we have been asked to omit the proviso. It may have been prejudicial to those States.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.
