Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - I move-

That the House ofRepresentatives be requested to make the following amendment : - " Leave out this Act or under the Tariff proposals . to which the Customs Tariff Validation Act 1917 or the Customs Tariff Validation Act 1919 applies insert sub-section (1) of section twelve of this Act or under the Tariff proposals specified in sub-section (1) of section thirteen of this Act.' "

After this measure has been proclaimed all that is not in conformity with its provisions will cease to operate. This amendment has been necessitated because Tariff duties have been collected for fifteen months under certain resolutions which authorized onlythe collection of duties. This will make the procedure uniform and will dispense with the injustice which has been created in consequence of certainarrangements with South Africa being unintentionally cancelled.
