Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Postmaster-General) . - I move -

That the bill be now read a second time.

The purpose of this bill is to eliminate from the operation of the Customs Tariff (Exchange Adjustment) Act those items and parts of items for which provision for exchange fluctuation is now made in the items themselves. It is really only a machinery measure, complementary to the alterations that have been made in relation to exchange in the Customs Tariff Bill No. 4, which has just been approved by the Senate.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time and passed through its remaining stages without amendment or debate.
