Mr OSBORNE - No. The sort of thing that the Government has in mind is the 85-foot satellite tracking dish at Woomera. That is owned by the United States of America but it is operated by Australia. If it were not for a provision of this sort, such goods would be dutiable and it is obviously not desirable to charge duty on goods of that nature.

There is no provision in the customs tariff to cover these goods and the Government has decided to insert a by-law item which could be used when required for such imports. I expect to bring these matters up for consideration by the committee with a view to enactment before the Parliament rises, early next month. I commend the proposals to honorable members.

Progress reported.
