Mr FAIRHALL (Paterson) (Minister for Supply) . -I move -

That the Bill be now read a second time.

Mr. Speaker,this Bill provides for the validation until 13th February 1966 of the collection of Customs duties under Customs Tariff Proposals Nos. 8 to 12, that is to say, the proposals which have been moved in this House from the 12th October 1965 to date. Honorable members will appreciate that time will not permit these proposed tariff changes to be debated before the close of the session. The tariff changes will be re-introduced next year by " Gazette " notice as amendments to the Customs Tariff 1966 and will operate from 14th February 1966. The changes will later be introduced as Tariff Proposals in the first days of the autumn session and subsequently in a bill, when the opportunity to debate them will become available to honorable members. I commend the Bill to honorable members.

Debate (on motion by Dr. J. F. Cairns) adjourned.

Mr Fairhall - With respect, I should like to mention that I think there is an agreement to take this Bill through all stages now. There is very little substance in the measure and it will be available for debate in the autumn session.
