Mr McMAHON (Lowe) (Minister for Labour and National Service and Acting Attorney-General) .- I move - [Excise Tariff Amendment (No. 1).]

That the Schedule to the Excise Tariff 1921-1960 be amended as set out in the Schedule to these Proposals and that on and after the first day of June, One thousand nine hundred and sixty-one, Duties of Excise be collected in pursuance of the Excise Tariff 1921-1960 as so amended.


The tariff proposals I havejust tabled provide for a reduction in the excise duty on coal from 5d. to 4d. per ton, to operate on and from 1st June, 1961. I have already outlined the reason for the duty reduction when I introduced bills to amend the Coal Excise Act 1949 and the States Grants (Coal Mining Industry Long Service Leave) Act 1949-1956.

I commend the proposals to honorable members.

Progress reported.
