Mr HOWSON (Fawkner) (Minister for Air) .- I move-

That the Bill be now read a second time.

The purpose of this Bill is to extend the operation of the Sulphate of Ammonia Bounty Act 1962-1964 for a further maximum period of six months to 30th September 1966 or such earlier date as proclaimed. Under the existing Act, bounty will cease to be payable in respect of sulphate of ammonia sold after 31st March 1966. The Tariff Board is reviewing the question of assistance to producers of sulphate of ammonia in the context of the Board's inquiry into the Australian chemical industry generally. It is desired to continue assistance to producers in the interim period, pending receipt and examination of the Board's report. Amendments to the Act with respect to the recent changeover to decimal currency have also been made. I commend the Bill to honorable members.

Debate (on motion by Mr. Pollard) adjourned.
