Senator COTTON (New South WalesMinister for Civil Aviation) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

This Bill will amend the Excise Act 1901- 1968 by converting existing references to measurement to metric equivalents. The amendments relate principally to the conversion to litres of the maximum and minimum sizes of certain vessels, namely, barrels, half-hogsheads, hogsheads and kilderkins used by the brewing industry and to the quantities for duty of beer marketed in these vessels. I commend the Bill.

Debate (on motion by SenatorPoyser) adjourned.
