Senator LECKIE(Victoria - Assistant

Minister) [4.5]. - I move -

That the bill be now read a second time.

The effect of the duties proposed is to reduce by 9d. per lb. the rates imposed on tobacco of Southern Rhodesian origin entered to be locally manufactured into tobacco and cigarettes. The proposals are consequent upon the Trade Agreement (Southern Rhodesia) Bill 1941 which was dealt with earlier, and are necessary to give effect to the agreement so far as the Commonwealth is concerned. As I have already stated the proposals will take effect from a date to be fixed by proclamation, when the terms of the agreement shall have been approved by the respective governments.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

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