Senator ANDERSON (New South Wales) (Minister for Customs and Excise) . - in reply - Again I am grateful to the Senate for its co-operation in ensuring the speedy passage of this legislation. In answer to the questions raised by Senator Scott, I point out that this is merely a Bill to extend the period of the bounty for six months. The matters which he raised may well be under consideration by the Tariff Board. When the Board makes its report it will, of course, be tabled in the Senate. The

Government will consider any recommendations that the Board may make. I would not presume to make any comment on the substance of the matters raised by Senator Scott. We agree that, pending the decision of the Tariff Board, this worthwhile bounty should be continued for the benefit of the industry and for the ultimate benefit of Australia.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

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