Mr POYNTON (Grey) .- I do not think that the compromise suggested by the honorable and learned member for Angas will carry him any further forward. If the duty upon blended brandy is reduced to lis., we shall not provide for a sufficient differentiation between pure grape wine brandy and blended brandy. It would simplify matters very much if a special paragraph were inserted, dealing with brandy made from grape wine spirit, as contrasted with blended brandy made of grape spirit and of spirit distilled from other materials. I cannot agree to accept a reduction of the duty upon blended brandy to 11s., because that would place the manufacturers of pure grape wine brandy at a disadvantage.
