Mr SCULLY (Gwydir) (Minister for Commerce and Agriculture) . - by leave - I move -

That the bill be now read a second time.

A subsidy is being paid under the terms of the Dairying Industry Assistance Act 1943 on milk or cream which is to be processed at a factory into butter, cheese, or dried, condensed or concentrated milk. "When the proposals on which the. subsidy was based were framed, it was intended to confine the subsidy to. dairy produce processed in premises registered as factories under State legislation, or under Commonwealth laws in relation to the export of dairy products. Doubt has been raised as to whether the definition in the act meets this intention, and the purpose of this bill is to clarify the position.

Debate (on motion by Mr. Fadden) adjourned.
