Mr GLYNN (Angas) .- This clause requires to be amended in order to bring it in keeping with the definition clause as altered by the Committee. I move-

That after the word "to," line 6, the following words be inserted : - " Australian blended wine brandy, or Australian blended whisky which are entered for home consumption before the1st January, 1908."

Sir William Lyne - What does the honorable and learned member propose subsequent to that? What about other spirits ?

Mr GLYNN - I propose an extension of time only in the case of Australian blended wine brandy and Australian blended whisky. My proposal would have the effect of bringing the enacting clause into line with the definition. In its present form, the clause refers to spirits which are subject to the control of the Customs Department. That portion of it must be eliminated, because - as I have already pointed out - some of the wine in relation to which the exemption is proposed will be the wine of the next vintage, which cannot possibly yet be subject to the control of the Customs.
