Senator PLAYFORD (South Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - I would point out to Senator Neild that imported spirits and spirits which have been manufactured in the Commonwealth are not upon the same plane. The period between now and the 28th February is a comparatively short one. If we extend it to the 30th June, importers will have ample time to clear their goods from the Customs, and will not have the slightest ground for complaint. I therefore move-

That the words " twenty-eighth day of February," be left out, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words " thirtieth day of June."

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment (by Senator Playford) proposed -

That after the words " imported spirits," the following words be inserted : - " (other than gin, geneva, hollands, schnapps, or liqueurs)."
