Customs Tariff Proposals No. 16 (1973)

The Customs Tariff Proposals which I have just tabled relate to proposed amendments to the Customs Tariff 1966-1972 to implement the Government's acceptance of the Tariff Board's recommendation in its report on Resins of the Propylene Type. The Board has recommended that a rate of 30 per cent apply to Resins of the Propylene Type. As this report was received prior to 19 July, the duties adopted by the Government are those recommended by the Board less the 25 per cent tariff cut. The new duties will operate from tomorrow. A summary of changes and duty rates is being circulated to honourable members. I commend the proposals.

Debate (on motion by Mr Molten) adjourned.
