The PRESIDENT -Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted. (The document read as follows)-

This Bill is supplementary to Customs Tariff Bill 1974 which I have just introduced. The commencement date for the amendments to the Customs Tariff 1966-1973 as provided for in Customs Tariff Bill 1974 is 1 July, although the amendments were in operation for some time prior to that date. Collections of duty in accordance with those amendments were previously validated up to 30 June 1974, with the exception of amendments contained in Customs Tariff Proposals Nos 6 and 7. It is therefore necessary to now formally validate collections of duty under Proposals Nos 6 and 7 during their period of operation before the commencement of Customs

Tariff Bill 1974. Accordingly, Custom Tariff Validation Bill (No. 2) 1974 is introduced to validate collections of duty under Proposals Nos 6 and 7 until 30 June 1 974. 1 commend the Bill.

Debate (on motion by Senator Greenwood) adjourned.
