Mr FOWLER (Perth) .- I fancy that liqueurs are produced in some parts of Australia.

Mr Poynton - Are they not made at Seppeltsfield ?

Mr FOWLER - I believe that they are, and that they are also produced in, at least, one Victorian wine-making establishment. I am of opinion that there is a considerable future in Australia for the production of liqueurs. If we are going, to relax the condition relating to the maturing of spirits, I see no reason why it should not be relaxed all round. In my judgment, it is a distinctly retrograde step, but I like to be as logical as possible, and if we grant an extension in the case of two classes of spirits, I think that other spirits which are upon the same footing as regards their manufacture should be treated in a similarway.
