TARIFF ON ORANGE JUICE 79/24

A further extension of the present tariff on orange juice — currently 65 percent — will be made from 28 February 1979 until 31 March, 1979.

The Minister for Business and Consumer Affairs, Mr Ual. Fife, and the Minister for Primary Industry, Mr Ian Sinclair, announced this today.

This action would extend the existing level of protection for a further month during the current processing season for Valencia oranges and allow processors to continue this season's processing under present protective levels.

It would enable the international position to become clearer before the Government gave final consideration to the I.A.C. report, the Ministers said.
