Mr Lionel Bowen (KINGSFORD-SMITH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

The Bill now before the House amends the Excise Tariff 1921-1972, as amended by the Excise Tariff 1973 and by the Excise Tariff (No. 2) 1973, in accordance with Excise Tariff Proposals No. 1 which I tabled on 21 August last. The changes which operate on and after eight o'clock in the evening on 21 August 1973 give effect to the Government's Budget measures which increased the excise duties on potable spirits, manufactured tobacco products and refined petroleum products. A summary of the changes is being circulated to honourable members. I commend the Bill.

Debate (on motion by Mr Gorton) adjourned.
