Senator LECKIE (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - I move -

That the bill be now read a second time.

The object of this bill is to ensure that the duties set out in the customs tariff resolutions of the 21st November and the 11th December, 1940, shall operate until Parliament has had an opportunity to ratify them. The collection of duties under the resolutions is valid only until the 21st May and the 11th June, respectively, and it is considered advisable to validate collections until the 3rd July to allow reasonable time for Parliament to deal with them. It is not proposed at this juncture to discuss the tariff schedule item by item.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

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