(1) notes the severe plight of grape growers in Australia in both the wine and dried fruits industries;

(2) notes the savage effect which the introduction of an excise tax will have on these growers and on wine makers;

(3) condemns the Government for this ill-conceived and ill-considered tax, and

(4) calls on the Government to remove the tax immediately.
