Mr CHIPP (Hotham) (Minister for Customs and Excise) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time. This Bill provides for the validation up to and including 15th August 1972 of duties of excise collected on wine at the reduced rate of duty pursuant to Excise Tariff Proposals No. 1 which I tabled on 25th May last. Because of the enactment ?f the Excise Tariff 1972, to operate on and from 1st July 1972, the Government has decided to seek validation df the reduced rate for the period 26th May 1972 to 15th August 1972, both dates inclusive, to cover both the pre-metric and post-metric forms of the Excise Tariff. I commend the Bill.

Debate (on motion by Dr J. F. Cairns) adjourned.
