Mr FORDE (Capricornia) (Minister for Trade and Customs) .- It is possible that at any time Parliament may impose different rates of duty on various classes of wine, and if that should take place, this provision will prevent any person from blending wine after the duty has been imposed upon it.

Mr Crouch - Is the Minister referring to the blending of wine in private houses ?

Mr FORDE - I am referring to wines blended at licensed wineries. Without this provision it is possible that the revenue may be defrauded. I, therefore, think it wise to allow it to remain in the bill.
