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

That the bill be now reada second time.

This bill is introduced for the purpose of validating until the 5th March, 1943, the collection of the special war duty imposed by proposals of the 5th March, 1942. The special war duty was imposed for war-time revenue purposes. Time does not permit the debating of the proposals at present, and validation of the collections of duty thereunder is necessary in order to protect the revenue.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

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