Mr GLYNN (Angas) . - I can assure the honorable member for Moira that I really intended to ask that this provision should apply to future vintages, because we cannot make Australian brandy from the present wine stocks. I would point out to him that the amendment would not apply to Australian standard brandy. but simply to the rectified spirits, which enter into blends, and which it is urged do not impiove with age.

Sir William Lyne - I should like time to consider the honorable and learned ber's proposal, because it seems to me that he suggests a rather long extension.

Mr GLYNN - The extension would apply only in the case of grape wine spirit, because we have to wait for the vintage. In the case of molasses spirit the materials for its distillation are already available.
