Senator PLAYFORD (South Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - An official certificate is accepted in England.

Senator Clemons - Is that embodied in an English Act?

Senator PLAYFORD - I think so.

Senator Clemons - In the same words as are used in this clause?

Senator PLAYFORD - I do not say that. Brandy from France imported into England must be accompanied by a certificate in order that the importers may be able to guarantee that it is pure wine spirit. The certificates are signed by French officials, and are accepted as proof that the brandy has been made from wine. We shall be prepared to accept similar certificates. Of course, samples will be taken in addition, and if any spirit is not in accordance with the certificate, it will be rejected. We shall not depend entirely upon the certificate.
