(1) notes that the previous Government repeatedly promised to reconsider an admitted anomaly in applying increasing sales tax to non-grape wines produced by Tropical Wines of North Bundaberg while allowing increased grape wine consumption without tax for the whole of its period in office; and

(2) calls upon the present Government to reduce that tax to a level not greater than those on fortified grape wine and remove this unfair discrimination against a pioneering industry.
