Mr OSBORNE (Evans) (Minister for Customs and Excise) . - 1 move -

That preliminary paragraphs 1 and 2 be omitted and the following paragraph be inserted in their stead: - " That the Schedule to the Customs Tariff 1933- 1956 be amended as hereinafter set out, and that on and after the thirty-first day of August, One thousand nine hundred and fifty-six, 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 1933-1956 as so amended."

This is purely a formal amendment to bring the preliminary matter into line with the existing tariff position. Since Customs Tariff Proposal No. 7 was introduced, the tariff proposals referred to in the preliminary paragraphs have been incorporated in the Customs Tariff 1933-1956 by legislation.

Amendment agreed to.

Motion, as amended, agreed to.
