Mr FISHER —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House notes that-

(1) the Government has belatedly recognised the damaging effect of its fortified wine excise and has modified the tax;

(2) the harmful collection method of the tax has not been altered, and

(3) the tax adds $150 per tonne to the price of grapes and therefore will seriously reduce grape receivals.
