Mr LIONEL BOWEN (Attorney-General) —I ask for leave of my distinguished colleague, the honourable member for North Sydney (Mr Spender) to foreshadow an amendment to be moved on behalf of the Government which relates to the Wine Grapes Levy Collection Act 1979.

Leave granted.

Mr LIONEL BOWEN —I understand that this is a drafting matter. The honourable member might like to advert to it in the course of the debate. The proposed amendment will extend the protection afforded by the proposed new section 10 (2) of the Wine Grapes Levy Collection Act 1979. Information is being obtained as a direct or indirect consequence of the furnishing of the return or information, so as to bring the provision into line with similar provisions in other legislation. This is by way of an explanatory memorandum which would need to pick up that amendment, if the House agrees to it. I thought I should mention that at the outset. Apparently it has just been brought to the notice of my Department. I thank the honourable member for letting me say those few words.
