Senator KEANE (Victoria) (Minister for Trade and Customs) . - I move -

That the bill be now read a second time.

The purpose of the bill is to validate, until the 31st March, 1942, the collection of the special war duty imposed by the proposals of the 2nd July, 1941. The special war duty was imposed for wartime revenue purposes. It is not possible to debate the proposals at this stage, but it is necessary to validate collections made thereunder in order to safeguard the revenue.

Debate (on motion by Senator McLeay) adjourned.
