Sir JOHN QUICK (Bendigo) . - I approve of the amendment of the honorable and learned member for Angas, which postpones the operation of the maturity condition for nearly two years in the case. the two blends which he has mentioned.

But I ask the Minister to consider whether the same provision ought not to apply to locally-made gins and Genevas. If the operation of the condition as to storage in wood is to be postponed in the case of imported gins and Genevas, it ought also to be postponed in the case of locally-made gins and Genevas. I therefore suggest that the honorable and learned member for Angas should add to his proposal the following words, " and Australian gins and Genevas."

Mr Glynn - I have no objection.

Sir William Lyne - I do not know what effect the amendment might have. I do not know whether Hollands, or schnapps, or liqueurs are produced in Australia.

Sir JOHN QUICK - There are no liqueurs produced here.

Sir William Lyne - What about schnapps ?

Sir JOHN QUICK - Schnapps are distilled in Australia.

Sir William Lyne - Then the exemption should also apply to them.
