The Customs Tariff Proposals which I have just tabled relate to proposed amendments of the Customs Tariff 1966-1969. Customs Tariff Proposals Nos 1 to 7 (1970) formally place before Parliament the tariff changes made by 'Gazette' notices and published in the 'Gazettes' of 2nd, 10th and 17th October, 6th November, 18th, 19th and 24th December 1969 and 6th February 1970. On those dates the Parliament had been dissolved or was in recess.

Proposals No. 1, operating from 3rd October 1969 implements a report by the Special Advisory Authority on metal working machine tools. He has recommended temporary duties to apply to imports of certain general purpose lathes and grinding machines having a free-on-board price below certain specified amounts. Next are Proposals No. 2 operating from 13th

October 1969. These deal with changes arising from the adoption of the Tariff Board's reports on -
