Dr PATTERSON (Dawson) (Minister for Northern Development) - in reply - The honourable member for Berowra (Mr Edwards) asked why in the Wine Overseas Marketing Bill the definition of *winery' and 'distillery' has a qualification of 25 tonnes when in the

Wine Grape Charges Bill the qualification is 10 tonnes. This has been an established practice over the years. The reason for the lower qualification in the Wine Grape Charges Bill is obviously to spread more widely the burden of financing the Australian Wine Board. There is no other reason. This is not a matter that has been raised with the Government by the industry.
