Senator LAUCKE (South Australia) - This is a very forthright and simple Bill. It involves the conversion from the imperial ton to the metric tonne. It involves also a 1.6 per cent increase in the canning fruit charges. The Opposition has no desire to defer or postpone it. Rather in a spirit of assisting the legislation through with the greatest possible expedition, I indicate that we will not oppose the Bill and are prepared to put it through all its stages immediately.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time, and passed through its remaining stages without requests or debate.
