Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) - It is only fair to intimate that I intend to submit a subsequent amendment. It will be noticed that in the Bill as originally introduced, and in the re-draft prepared by Senator Drake, the expression occurs, " goods of a description, not liable to Customs and Excise duty on the 1st day of January." I submit that the words, " of a description " will be liable to lead to some complication later on. It seems to me that all we need to say in the Bill, or in the amendment, is simply "goods not liable."

Senator Playford - That appears to me to be right.

The CHAIRMAN - I suggest that it would be better to dispose of the amendment now before the Committee before dealing with that which the honorable senator has now suggested.

Suggest corrections
