Mr PERKINS (Eden) (Monaro- Minister for Trade and Customs) . - I move -

That the preliminary paragraphs be omitted, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the following preliminary paragraph: - " That the schedule to the Customs Tariff 1933-1938 be amended as hereunder set out, and that on and after the eighteenth day of November, One thousand nine hundred and thirty-eight, at nine o'clock in the forenoon, reckoned according to standard time in the Australian Capital Territory, Duties of Customs be collected in pursuance of the Customs Tariff 1933-1938 as so amended.".

This is a formal amendment in order to eliminate from the preliminary matter any reference to earlier tariff proposals and thus confine the resolution to the tariff amendments which the committee has just approved.

Amendment agreed to.

Preliminary paragraph, as amended, agreed to.
