Mr BRUCE (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) (Minister for External Affairs) - As the Wine Export Bounty Bill has been before the House for some time, and the amendments which the Government proposes to have made in it have been in circulation for several days, I regret that I find it impossible to postpone its consideration in committee. Representations in regard to the bounty have been received by the Government from many sources, and the honorable. member for Wakefield (Mr. Foster), and the honorable member for Angas (Mr. Parsons), have placed the position of the growers before the- Government very fully, but I cannot agree to any further postponement of the consideration of the bill.
