Mr DEAKIN (Ballarat) (Minister of External Affairs) . - I would point out to the honorable member that in the Bill which has already been drafted to give effect to the recommendations of the Tariff Commission, special provision is made that the spirit referred to in paragraphI shall be called standard brandy, and shall be so labelled, and that blended brandy shall be so described. The two classes of spirit will be separate and distinct, and will have distinguishing official labels.

Mr Skene - I wish to have a broader distinction even than that provided for.

Amendment (by Mr. Glynn) agreed to -

That the figures " 35," paragraph 1, line 38, be left out, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the figures " 40."

Amendment (by Mr. Deakin) proposed -

That after the figures " ns.," paragraph i, line 43, the following words he inserted : " and on and after 16th August, 1906, 10s."
