Senator COTTON (New South Wales) (Minister for Civil Aviation) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

Mr President,this is another Bill which is complementary to the Excise Tariff Bill 1972. The Bill converts the rate of duty imposed by the Act on diesel fuel entered for home consumption as from 1st July 1972 from 17.5c per gallon to its metric equivalent, namely, 3.85c per litre. I commend the Bill.

Debate (on motion by Senator Poyser) adjourned.

Sitting suspended from 5.51 to 8 p.m.
