Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - Every year there are a certain number of definitions given of Customs duties. Sometimes it transpires that a higher duty has been paid upon an article than should have been paid, and in such cases, refunds have to be made. Then fines are imposed for the non-payment of land tax, and circumstances afterwards come to light which show that these fines should be reduced. All these matters are dealt with under this heading. It is an item which appears in every Supply Bill.
