The CHAIRMAN - No; no point of order has been submitted.

Senator PULSFORD - I wish the Minister to be good enough to explain the difference between two dates mentioned in the Spirits Bill and in the Bill now before us. In clause 11 of the Spirits Bill, we have the proviso that - this section shall not come into operation till the 1st day of January, One thousand . nine hundred and eight.

In this Bill, we have it provided that spirits distilled wholly from grape wine, and spirits, n.e.i. - which were on the 17th day of August, One thousand nine hundred and six, in the spirit store of any distillery or in any Customs warehouse until the 1st day of March, 1907, be delivered at the rates of duty specified in the Excise Tariff 1902

Will the Minister be good enough to explain the relation between those dates ?
