Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) . - There seems to.be no provision for the importation of methylated spirits.


Sir John Quick - The provision in the original Tariff remains unrepealed.


Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - What about the importation of spirit for fortifying Australian wine?


Mr Deakin - I do not think that spirit is imported for fortifying Australian wine, because our vignerons get local spirit free of duty.


Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Does not the Minister propose to give them the same opportunity for getting imported spirits?


Mr Deakin - No ; that is not necessary.


Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Methylated spirits will continue to be imported at the present rate?


Mr Deakin - Yes.
